this point, and we wanted to add space to it. We wanted to extend the C volume, we would have very few options at this point. Probably the best thing to do would be to actually backup the data on the F volume, and delete it. And then recreate Data down here, as a simple volume. Now, with the Data volume recreated just on Disk 2, I would restore the data from backup onto the new Data volume. And then I can come up to C, right-click. Extend the volume, and then consume the rest of the unallocated space on Disk 0. Bumping it up to around 40 gigabytes. Summary 11:39-11:42 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo we talked about how to extend volumes and how to create mount points. Shrinking and Splitting Partitions 0:00-2:54 In this demonstration, we're going to spend some time looking at how you shrink a volume on Windows. Of course, to do this, you need to be in Disk Management. I'll right-click on my Windows icon, and then click on Disk Management. Let me slide this up so we can see all the disks in the system. We have Disks 0, 1, 2, and 3 in the system. There is no unallocated space available on this disk. Let's suppose for some reason I need to create an additional drive. For example, maybe I'm going to store sensitive documents on that drive, and I want to implement some permissions that will restrict access severely to that information. An easy way to do that is to create a separate volume and implement those permissions at the volume level. Well, I don't have that option, because I don't have any volumes available. One option I do have, however, is to take one of these volumes and shrink it and then create another volume out of the available unallocated space, effectively splitting the volume. For example, notice that the Data volume here is 32 gigs in size and it encompasses all of Disk 2. Well, we could shrink Data down to where it encompasses about 16 gigs, about half of the hard disk drive, freeing up an additional 16 gigs that we can use for a new volume where we're going to put that confidential information. So let's right-click on the Data volume, and then click on Shrink Volume. So Disk Management decided how much we can shrink this volume. Notice that because Data does not have a whole lot of information on it currently, that the shrink process can be fairly aggressive.Here's the size before shrinking, 32 gigs roughly. There's roughly 29 to 30 gigs of available shrink space. So if we go with the default, then the Data volume is going to be cranked down to just under 3 gigs in size. Now that's a little bit more than we currently want. Let's instead shrink it to about half size. So let's change the amount of space to shrink to 16384, it's roughly 16 gigs. This is how much space will be unallocated after the shrink. Here's how big the Data volume will be after the shrink process as well.

    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.
