Sliding a builtin hard drive

Postby mjnelson99 » Wed Aug 03, 2016 9:30 am

I want to try Win 10 on my laptop BUT the C partition is too small.
If I could slide D to make room, it could be done.

When I booted into an older version of BM I could not get Slide to work.
Is it possible for an internal hard drive???? Maybe I need to update my
SD card with BIBM?

I realized I had to do a resize of D BEFORE sliding to give it somewhere
to slide. It has now started.

When finished, I should have enough room for Win 10 on that drive.

I did get the latest BIBM first though.

The slide went fine and took less than 1 hour.

Love this program. No need to get a new hard drive!!
