When one wants to extend Windows partition, he can rely on Windows snap-in utility. And the “Extend Volume” feature can do him a favor. However, this function owns some limitations that only when there is unallocated space right behind a partition (with NTFS file system), one can extend its space. Therefore, if users want to expand GPT partition in Windows by using non-contiguous unallocated space, things will be more complicated. Before extending, they should convert the GPT disk into dynamic (Note: when there is only a disk, users needn’t adopt dynamic disk; some OS may not support dynamic disk). Well, is there any simple way to do the process without converting disk to dynamic disk?
It is true that users can increase GPT partition size without converting basic disk to dynamic disk. And MiniTool Partition Wizard is just the one that can do you a favor. This freeware will help users enlarge Windows partition by borrowing space from any other partition on a disk. Furthermore, it will do no change on the disk type. Therefore, it is the best tool to do the job.
