Many Windows 7 users may have encountered the situation where system partition is lacking in space, so many applications can not be installed and the operating system runs slowly and is not stable. In this situation, some users will delete some unimportant data to release more unused space for operating system and applications, thereby changing the unfavorable condition. However, that operation is only a temporary solution, but can not settle the problem, because we can not remove the data if all data are important. So, to change partition size is a pretty good choice in this situation. According to the practical situation, changing partition size in Windows 7 will solve the problem easily and with the experience of resizing partition in Windows 7, the similar difficulties could be fixed readily in the future.
How to resize partition in Windows 7?
For Windows 7 users, there are two ways to change partition size in Windows 7: using the built-in disk management tool and using the third-party partition magic. Due to the limitation of the built-in utility, if we use the first method to resize partition in Windows 7, there must be unallocated space behind and adjacent to the partition to be extended; otherwise, extending partition can not be realized. However, applying the third-party partition magic is more flexible. With MiniTool Partition Wizard, even if there is no unallocated space next to the target partition, we can also realize extending partition in Windows 7.
