    Hey i was wanting to know if its possible to make the local disk (C:) drive much larger on a laptop computer without deleting any memory or user profiles off of my laptop.

    I really need a bigger local disk (C:) drive and i don't want to lose any of my saved files or programs or user profiles that's on my laptop now.

    My local disk (C:) drive is 50GB and its about full and i know to use CC Cleaner and to use Disk Cleanup so the problem is such a small local disk (C:) drive.

    So i really need to know can i get a bigger local disk (C:) drive and not lose any of my saved files or programs or user profiles that's on my laptop?

    You can increase size of the disk using partition manager software.
    Use Minitool Partition Wizard to resize your "C" drive taking space from other drivers which are free, without losing existing data from "C" Drive.

    Yes, that is possible.
    Take a complete backup image of drive "C" using "acronis true image home" using sector by sector option on to some external hard disk.
    Create Acronis Bootable Recovery CD.
    Install new 500 GB on to your laptop.
    Restore the disk image using Acronis Bootable CD.

    Your old hard disk contents exactly as it was, now on your new Drive.
