As you can see from the attached image, the partition that I save my Macrium images to has a red bar for the capacity space indicator. I am assuming this means it is close to full. Is this the correct assumption?
Also, can I extend this partition? I want to make it double space than the current. Can someone refresh my memory, how I can do it?
Thanks, you guys! I appreciate all of your input!
