Have you ever encountered with the problem that the Window 8 system partition is running out of space? I believe the answer will always be “Yes”. Once this trouble comes, many people will turn to Windows snap in disk management tool (or DM). Nevertheless, they may get stuck in the process of using the utility. As we all know, if one wants to enlarge Windows 8 system partition in DM, there must be a contiguous unallocated space on the right side of system partition. It is true that people can delete a partition to get the needed unallocated space. However, they may suffer from data loss. Only when one has backed up the data, he can get rid of the risk. What if you don’t have a backup? Under this circumstance, it is wise to adopt a third party partition manager to make up DM’s limitation. Well then, is there any software worth recommending? Of course, the powerful MiniTool Partition Wizard can increase Win 8 system partition size without losing data. Furthermore, it can extend a partition by borrowing unused space from other partitions or unallocated space on the same disk. Detailed instruction to execute the change will be displayed below.
Please download and install the partition magic into your computer. Then run it to get its start-up interface and click on “Launch Application” to enter into the next window.
1. Choose the specified partition(C:) and click “Extend Partition” from the left panel to go to the next interface.
2. Select a partition to borrow free space and drag sliding button to decide how much space to borrow. Then click “OK” to return to the main interface.

3. Click “Apply” button to perform the very change. Once the pending operation gets finished, the goal to increase partition size will be reached by MiniTool Partition Wizard.
