    Screenshot of my disk management conundrum. Thread here

    Any technowizards out there who can answer what is probably a simple question, please?

    My computer has 3 drives. They are all partitioned. One is a SSD.

    I'd like to take unused space from one partition and add it to another, but it seems I can only extend a partition if the free space is next door to it, and I can't work out how to shuffle the partitions along to leave the unused space next to the partition I want to add it to. Make sense?

    I'm talking about Disk 0, the first of the three charts. The unused space, 20Gb, is at the far right and I want to add it to the C: partition, which is highlighted and illustrated with hatched markings.

    Any idea how I shuffle the partitions along to leave the free space where I need/ want it, please?

    Great shot. As an ex-squaddie with a few other ex-squaddies at my place of work, we're all laughing at the main character's medals. (Because squaddies always poke fun at one another, and once a squaddie, always a squaddie.)

    The farthest right is the Long Service and Good Conduct (LSGC) medal, which denotes '15 years undetected crime', and bar, which denotes a further ten years undetected crime.
    The other two are the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal and Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal - both awarded to all service personnel and emergency service workers with five years service on the relevant qualifying dates. So they were regarded as 'gizzits', freebies.

    Conspicuous by their absence are Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. 25 years service, minimum, not one single operational tour lasting thirty days, and we've no doubt he'll have travelled more and visited more countries than the lot of us put together!

    I'm no expert (far from it) - but are those drum brakes?

  • 'Arty' cycling

    As discussed in a recent forum thread, I attended stage 1 of the Tour Of Britian cycle race and tried some panning shots using a too-long exposure, and it was basically over before there was time to do anything about it - hence why I've described them as 'arty'. Going with that theme, I ran this one through an oil painting filter.

    Marco, if you're reading, the others are here. The rest of my portfolio is here.

  • Power of Thought

    Reminded me of (The) Bicentennial Man, written by Asimov, an author I used to enjoy reading when I was younger.

  • Messing with Macro

    Quote:This would have been a good candidate for focus stacking..

    Yeah but I think to achieve that I'd need to set up on a tripod to ensure consistent framing, etc. One day, perhaps, but too much trouble for now!

    PS Colin is my Sunday name, or my grown-up name, which I'm gradually using more often these days Wink
