If users encounter the problem of insufficient partition space, they can add more free space to the partition to solve it. Nevertheless, how to allocate more space to a partition in Windows 7 without influencing the original data?
If users want to add free space to a partition via Windows built-in disk management tool, they can click “Extend Volume”. However, there are conditions to be followed. For instance, the selected partition which needs extending (or shrinking) must be NTFS partition, and the “Extend Volume” function only works with contiguous free space or unallocated space on the right side of the partition users like to extend. Here, since built-in disk management tool cannot work well to add free space to Windows 7 partition, users are suggested to use partition management software.
