4 partitions and an unallocated space on my Windows 7 computer (the unallocated space is behind E drive). And I always store many applications on C drive. However, I didn’t make the C drive large enough and need to extend it now. However, I tried many ways (such as built-in disk management tool) to move the unallocated space to C drive in Windows 7, but failed. Can you help me to solve the problem?
As we know, the “Extend Volume” of Windows built-in disk management tool only works with contiguous unallocated space on the right side of the partition users would like to extend. Thus, you cannot add the unallocated space to C drive as it is behind E drive. At this time, you can turn to third-party software to accomplish the task. However, users should be very careful when they are selecting a partition management program since there is so much inferior software. Once a piece of debased software is used, it is likely to damage partition and cause data loss. Here, when considering security and performance, we think MiniTool Partition Wizard is the best partition magic software since it can help users to easily move, resize and extend partition without influencing the original data. What’s more, it is free.
Firstly, users should download this free partition software, and then install it on computer. After that, run it to get its main interface as follows:
In this interface, the free partition magic software shows all partitions and detailed information about them. To successfully move unallocated space to C drive in Windows 7, select the C drive and click “Extend Partition” in the Operations group of Action Panel.
In this window, take free space from unallocated space to extend partition and drag sliding button to determine how much space to take. After that, click “OK” button to go back to the main interface.
In the main interface, users can see C drive has increased from 73.4 GB to 82.6 GB and the unallocated space is gone. At this time, click “Apply” to execute all changes. After all operations are done, moving unallocated space to C drive in Windows 7 is finished.
If users also download MiniTool Partition Wizard to extend Windows 7 partition, they will be surprised by its powerful functions.
