After using my Windows XP for a long time, I received a warning: my C drive is running out of space. As a result, the Windows operating system is running much slowly. Therefore, I deleted some files on this drive, but I only got little free space since most files and data on this drive are very important to me. At this time, is there any chance for me to increase C drive size in Windows XP without data loss since I don’t want to back up all important data?
In general, users can use disk management tool and partition magic to solve the problem. Although Windows built-in disk management tool has some basic functions to change partition size, it has great limitations. For instance, it cannot extend/shrink FAT partition, and it cannot extend a partition if there is no unallocated space on the right side of the partition. On the contrary, partition magic software not only can support FAT and NTFS partition, but also can successfully extend partition even if there is no unallocated space on the same disk. And here when considering data security and powerful functions, we strongly suggest MiniTool Partition Wizard.
Users should download this free, powerful and professional partition magic at first, and install it on computer, and launch it to get its main window as follows.
In the main interface of MiniTool Partition Wizard, users need to select the C drive and click “Extend Partition” from action panel.
At this time, users can take free space from an existing partition (it can be any partition except itself, and users can choose the most suitable one according to actual demands). And then, drag the sliding button to a desirable place to determine how much free space to take. After that, click “OK” button to go back to the main interface. Finally, click “Apply” button on the left to execute all changes to Windows.
After seeing the simple introduction, users can easily and quickly increase C drive size in Windows XP without data loss by using MiniTool Partition Wizard.
