hello everyone, merry Xmas, i have a question, i want to make an image of my C:\, and save it to an EXT HD, then extend the size of the C:\ drive using EASEUS partiton manager, i have a D:\ partiton that will delete, and re format to have space to extend my C:\.
i have been told that if i make an image and then resize my C drive that imagae would not work since the C:\ is now at a new size, the reason i am doing this is my C:\ is running out of space since it is only 10Gigs, the reason its 10Gigs is that i partitioned a 120Gig drive and used only 10Gigs for my XP OS, the D,partiton is 40Gigs which i have backed up/ copied to and EXT HD, E and F is being used and i do not want to delete those ..
this is what i will try to do
1. delete the D partition, the D partition now becomes free space
2. delete the D partitionn now the D partiton become un allocated free space
3 click on the C drive and extend the C volume
10240 = 10 gigs
4. hopefully C:\ will become 20Gigs and all will be well ??

any other helpfull hints are welcomes
thanks in advace

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
