Intel Rapid Start is installed on a ThinkPad I have. RST uses a hibernation partition (HP) that is sized at a minimum the amount of RAM. Lenovo configured mine at 8GB. I installed 16B of better stuff when I got the device. Now I want to follow the Intel spec on partition size.
In Disk Management under Windows 7, that partition is static and there aren't any options for changing it. I can shrink C: by an additional 8GB, but it just goes to unallocated space and I can't see a way to add it to the HP.
I tried imaging the drive using Macrium, and went to restore the image and to monkey with the partition sizes there, but, like in Windows, that HB won't budge.
What's the trick?
Thanks for joining the community.
I understand you would like to increase hibernation partition for rapid start software.
You can use disk part; this is DOS tool from Microsoft. For 16 GB, the value should be 16000. The value should be equal or larger than the amount of memory in the system. Please check information about hibernation partition here:
