Question: I always store applications in my only primary partition namely system partition. Recently, I found there is not enough free space in this partition, so I tried several ways (such as using Windows XP built-in disk management tool) to extend it but failed. Can you help me to increase the size of primary partition in Windows XP without influencing original data?
