PBR_DRV resizing

Thread needs solution

I just used Acronis 2017 to clone from 1T to 4T as the c: partition was almost full on Lenovo desktop. After cloning to the new 4T drive, C: partition is still 99% full, but PBR_DRV is 100 % empty, and it's current size is 3T. Shrinking option is greyed out from Windows Disk Management utility.

How do I get to resize this particular partition and allocate freed up space to c: partition.

Thanks for any help

Rajesh, welcome to these public User Forums.

The easiest way of resizing partitions and distributing the freed space to other partitions is to use a partition manager.  Download a copy of the free MiniTool Partition Wizard software which will do this for you.

I would recommend having a full disk backup of your OS drive before using any tools to insure against making any mistakes!
