Expanding D drive

Hi all

Apologies if this is a stupid question, but I would like to *safely *expand *by magic or something a D drive..

(* obligatiory)

I'm using something that is eating space on D, and we've already configured the server that there'a nothing left to give from C.

I need to run some processes on this appliance which will fall over and die (and possibly catch fire) if they don't have a good 350+ GBs free here.

Is there any way to increase the space on D? By about 500GBs.. Safely. By magic or something.

Typically D:\ Drive is a disc, instead of a Hard Drive disk. This is an 11-year-old's two cents, but 500GBs can't be added. It's a physical thing, like RAM. You should probably look into External Hard Drives on Ebay or Amazon.

Speaking of RAM, here's a joke website: http://downloadmoreram.com/

Post a picture of Disk Management. Then we can see what the options are.

Thanks. It's not a case of reallocating space - I need to create some. If I could spend some monies and take a NAS or something and push its space over to D, I would be very happy. But can't do that.. This is why I'm looking for magic - I can't think of a way around this.

Not exactly sure that, this falls into the category of magic or not, but I remember back in the old days (and you can still do it) you could mount a new drive to an empty NTFS folder on an existing volume.
This allows the local administrator to easily extend the storage capacity of any particular volume

Not sure if this will work for you or not as I'm still not exactly clear as to what you are wanting to do.
