As we all know, the Windows XP doesn’t provide the function of extending partition in the snap in disk management utility(DM for short). If users want to do the job, they should turn to command prompt program (or CMD). However, operations in the CMD are rather difficult for common computer users. And any misoperation may cause invocatable loss since the disk data is rather important for users.
Well, what else can users do if the disk partition is running out of its space? Actually, there is still a way to enlarge partition in Windows XP. Resorting to third party partition magic can be a good choice. Here, I’d like to recommend the powerful and professional MiniTool Partition Wizard for users.
