Problem: I have 4 partitions in Windows 8, namely partition C with 40GB, partition D with 80GB, partition E with 100GB, and partition F with 30GB. But now I found partition C nearly runs out of space while partition E has more than 50GB unused space left. Under this situation, how to redistribute hard disk space without bringing any damage to data?
Solution: users had better make full use of third-party partition magic since system snap-in Disk Management tool dose not offer corresponding solutions. Some users may say functions of resizing partition have been contained in Windows 8 built-in Disk Management tool, and they can use this tool to redistribute hard disk space. But in practical use users will find resizing partition can not work under these situations: operated partition is FAT partition; there is no unallocated or free space on hard disk; unallocated or free space is not located behind and neighboring to the partition which needs extending. Nevertheless, excellent partition magic supports operating any type of Windows partition and can reallocate hard disk space easily and safely no matter whether there is unallocated/free space. Next, let’s see how to redistribute hard disk space by using professional partition magic.
