door.Notice in this situation, I have this eight gigabyte unallocated chunk of Disk 0 that is contiguous with Drive C. So, I can add this to the C Drive. But notice that I also have a four gigabyte chunk over here, three and half gigabyte chunk over here. That's also on Disk 0, but I'm not allowed to add it to the C volume, it's not listed in the available column. That's because this chunk of space over here is not contiguous.There's a volume in between. The Data volume sits between this unallocated chunk and this unallocated chunk. Therefore, I can't use

this space. Also notice that in the available column, we don't see this 32 gigabyte chunk of unallocated space on Disk 1, or this 32 gigabyte chunk of unallocated space on Disk Two. And that's because of the second rule. You cannot extend the system volumeacross multiple hard disk drives. The space must reside on the same hard disk drive. So, we're stuck with just this one chunk. Let's go ahead and add it. We'll add eight gigs to volume C.That should boost it up to about 32 gigs. Still probably not enough for a productions system, but works fine in a demonstration environment. Click Finish. And notice now that that eight gigabyte chunk has now been incorporated into the C Drive. The resulting size is about 32 gigs. Now, if I were to right-click on this again, notice that extend volume is now grayed out. Why is it grayed out?Because there's no more contiguous, unallocated space available that can be added to C. This free space over here is not contiguous. And these two chunks of free space are on different hard disk drives. There's no more space that we can add to Drive C. Now, there's another rule you need to keep in mind regarding extending volumes. And that is the fact that you can only extend NTFS volumes. For example, if I were to come over here to Data. Right-click. Notice that the Extend Volume option is grayed out for it as well. Why is it grayed out? Because Data is a FAT32 volume. You cannot extend a FAT32 volume. Of course, you can fix this by converting it to an NTSF volume, we can do that real quickly. Open up an Admin level command prompt. And we'll type. Convert, F: / FS: NTFS. And we have to enter the volume label Data. Alright, so at this point, the Data volume's been converted from a FAT32 volume to an NTFS volume. Now if I right-click on it, I can extend it. I can extend this volume to use the contiguous space available on the same hard disk drive, which is this four gigabyte chunk right here. Let's go ahead and do that. And now we have about a seven and a half gig Data volume over here at the end of the drive. How to Create Mount Points 4:17-11:38 So with this in mind, let's now discuss creating mount points. Let's suppose that my users have been using the C volume, it's filling up with space. It's only got 32 gigs still, even though we extended it. We need additional space on the system. Well, if I right-click. Notice that the Extend Volume option is grayed out. That's because we're working with a basic disk. Remember we said earlier that one of the rules for extending volumes

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
