Q: extend dat. error?

How do I fix an 'extend.dat' error that has suddenly occurred when I try to open Outlook 2003 on xpsp2 notebook?
I have checked device manager processes and don't see anything unusual there?
I am the administrator and don't understand why this has occurred?

Preferred Solution: extend dat. error?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: extend dat. error?

I found the fix. My Computer>finding the extend.dat file and press delete and Reboot.
Error disappeared.
Thought that I should post this.
Have a good day. xpsp2

Hi guys,

I've got a windows partition set-up like below:

39MB (healthy EISA config) -> 14.65 GB Recovery (D) -> 43 GB (C) -> 1.95GB (no name) ->91.39GB unallocated

The partitions are set-up in that order. When I click on the 1.95 to extend it / add it to the 91.39GB, I get an error: the operation failed to complete because the disk management console view is not up to date. I've attempted to update it and restart the computer to no avail. Any ideas how I can get my 43GB combined with the 1.95GB and 91.39GB partitions located to the right of it?

If you fill out your system specs, then somebody might be able to help you.

I receive an extend.dat error msg. "an extend failed to initialize. Can't open extend,dat

I have seen some solutions, one being change extend.dat to extend.old by searching through C:\documents&Settings\...

but Vista no longer has documents and settings. I went ot folder options and check show hidden folder and files, and even though vista can't display documents and settings this will show C\users\...

All of this still means I can't locate that extend.dat file.

One another note, I have found that my Outlook version continually crashes and I think its my usage of Word as email editor.

Would a fresh uninstall/install lose all the email content or do I use to do a pst file backup?

A:How to Merge Partitions to Extend C Partition merge partitions to extend C drive

Windows Vista and newer have built-in tools that can resize volumes. See our tutorial for that here.Windows XP and earlier don't have the tools built-in, so you have to use a third party partitioning tool. We have a tutorial for that, too. This tutorial covers shrinking an existing volume to make space for a new second volume, but resizing two existing volumes is substantially similar.

Guys, when i installed windows 7, i made a partition of 40GB. I fear this will be swallowed up very soon as i download near enough eveything i find within the forum. I have 2 internal HD, both 149GB. When i installed Win 7 i seem to have lost the other HD that has XP on it! It does not show up in My Computer! The other 109GB on the same HD as the 40GB Partitoin is doing nothing. Can i link it to the Win 7 Partiotion so when the win7 one fills up it links to the other 109gb?

Also, how can i go about linking my other internal HD up? Where has it gone? LOL,


A:How To Extend HD

First, i have read other threads but i think my problem is diferent, or perhaps my english is very awfull (its possible).

I have win 7 , ultimate, 64 bits
Im trying to do with paragon partition manager, from program and from cd boot maked from this program.

This is my start configuration: (see attached file)
I obviusly want to extend C partition, shrinking D partition. I dont want to format or to backup all D partition.

Fist attemp:
I shrink d: partition, getting enough free gigabytes to right of d: partition. But when i try to expand c partition, program doenst "see" free space. Well, i think that to extend c:, free space must be just right to c: not right to d: partition; but imnot sure of this.

Second attemp:
I make a new partition from d: (i get d and e)
I make a partition backup from d into the new partition e
I erase d:.. in this moment i have a lot of gigabytes free just to the "right" of C:
But again when i try to extend c: program doesnt see free space
What im making wrong? ..

Hello all,

I am having a problem that I hope someone here can help me with. I had to recently replace the hard drive in my laptop with a larger one (the old one was 30gb, the new one is 250gb). I managed to do that successfully (surprising to me as I am not tech savvy), yet when I go into disk management, I cannot extend C drive, as it isn't contiguous with the unallocated space. At the moment, my partitions look like this:

|C: 29.35gb|E: HP Recovery 6.36gb|F: OS Tools 1.55gb|Unallocated Space 260.82gb|

With the above scenario, the extend volume option is greyed out on drive C, so how do I go about getting around that?

Thank you in advance for your help here.

Oh, and I'm running Windows Vista Home Edition 32bit if that helps.

Hi all, when I last installed Win XP Pro on a new Hard Drive, I partitioned about 10gb (C Drive) just for the Windows files etc. Recently I have been getting messages about low disk space on C drive and even when I clean this up I only have about 600mb of free space. I have moved all "My Documents" and other files to the other partition but still cannot free up enough space.

Any suggestions please?

I'd like to increase the capacity of my C drive which contains the operating system (142GB; 39% free space) by either deleting or shrinking my D drive which is empty (143GB, 100% free space).

I've read several post from users who found that the 'extend volume' option is greyed out and found that this is the case on my laptop.

I have yet to delete or shrink the D drive so there is currently no unassigned space on the disk.

Attached is a screen print of the Computer Management window showing the current situation.

What is my best laid plan?


Andrew Baxter.

A:Extend volume

Have you had a look in the tutorial part of the site to see if there is anything there that can help?

My thoughts would be that you would have to go into the D partition and delete it which would put it as unallocated space, then you should be able to extend the C partition into that space.

Hopefully the experts will see this post and give you all the information you need and say if I got it right or wrong

hi all

after a bit of a slog trying to log on here (had to setup a new user as my old one was not sending password resets) im finally on! phew

anyways im after a bit of advice with regards to extending my wireless range.

currently my setup is as follows

phone line > netgear ADSL2+ wireless router (834gv4 iirc)> eithernet cable to my pc (out of range)

however the other day I came across a netgear DG834GT super wireless adsl router.

does anyone know how I can set the DG834GT to act as a extender or repeater (not sure on the correct terminology here)

all I want to do is extend the signal to the few rooms that dont get it.


A:How to extend my wireless..?

What you need to do is setup the 2nd router as an access point. You run an ethernet cable from your first router (the one hooked up to the dsl modem) to the 2nd router but before you do thaqt configure the 2nd as an access point.. Also make sure the set it to a different channel and the same SSID. I can not give you specific instructions or even know for sure the the 834GT is capable but that is what you need to extend your range.

I am running a Win 7 64-bit machine with an extra HD (F: in my screenshot). I have been reading and found the help I needed to delete an added partition and extend it to my D drive but my C is in the red.

My son is usually my personal geek but he is deployed and can't help me. I am totally paranoid about using command line so if there is another solution then that would be my first preference.

I have downloaded the Partition Wizard but wanted a bit of direction before I go off and tear something up.

Thank you in advance,


A:Need to Extend C Drive

Did you download the bootable version from the bottom of this link?

Free download Magic Partition Manager Software, partition magic alternative, free partition magic, partition magic Windows 7 and server partition software - Partition Wizard Online

If it's D that you want to delete, you are going to have to find some other place to put the data on it temporarily.

Looks like D has over 200 GB of data. Where can you put that temporarily? Won't fit on F?

Or do you want to delete some other partition?

You can't extend C onto F.

You can move space from D to C, but D would remain, albeit smaller.

It registers my tv and monitor as both screen 2. I managed to finally get it registered as screen three but only by connecting it wirelessly. the connection is not always the best so this is not ideal......

You cannot change the size of the drive that you're currently using because it's locked for Windows. In order to resize your C: drive you'll have to use another tool (outside of Windows) to resize the partition - make sure that the tool is Vista compatible so that there's no issues with the resizing.

Hello pavlix and welcome to Seven Forums.

My C drive was dying, so I replaced it and did a bare metal restore from a backup with ShadowProtect. All went well, except that now when I click "Computer" to view the drives, it tells me that the new C drive is only 698 GB (which was the capacity of the older drive). The new one is bigger (2 TB).
I'm trying to change the partition (there's only one) to a bigger size, using Disk Management in Windows, but it's not working. In the upper part of the dialogue where it lists the drives, it's reporting the incorrect amount of space (698 GB). But in the lower dialogue where it shows the partitions, it's showing the correct size of the new drive - 1863 GB. It all shows up as a Primary Partition; there's no Unallocated Space. If I rt-click and try to extend the volume, that option is grayed out.
One forum says that if you convert the disk to a dynamic disk it will then let you extend the volume. But it won't let me do that either - it tells me there's not enough space available to convert it.
How can I make Windows see the full size of the new drive?

A:Can't extend a partition

I'd say that you need to consult your Shadow Protect documentation on how it works.

I need to extend the data range of a collection of embedded charts on a worksheet. I saw the Extend method, but I really want this procedure to extend the series based on it's current source data values. I'm adding a new row of data each week, so I need each chart to extend it's data source by +1 row. I could not find a good example that used the existing range + 1 row.

Any help is appreciated.

Sub UpdateChartData()

For Each ChtObj In ActiveSheet.ChartObjects
ChtObj.Chart.SeriesCollection.Extend Source:=Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("A6:C6")
Next ChtObj

End Sub

A:Extend a set of charts...

Welcome to the board. Which version of which program are you using?

In Excel, this can be done without VBA by naming the source data range using a dynamic formula. Whether this method would suit depends on how you're set up so far.

Download & open the attached file. Press F5, type:


, press Enter. Note the range selected.

Enter 7 in B5 to see the chart expand. Do the F5-thing again.

Click on a column in the chart & note the formula bar, =SERIES(,,DynaChart.xls!Data,1)

To see the formula that defines the range "Data", go Insert -- Name -- Define.
