There are 4 partitions on local disk, namely partition C, D, E, and F. Now, partition C just has 500MB unused space left while partition D is full of available space. Therefore, I want to take 30GB unallocated space from partition D to extend partition C. How to resize partition C and D without losing data? Is there a wonderful solution?
Users had better not pin hope on Windows built-in Disk Management though “Extend Volume” and “Shrink Volume” are included. Users indeed can shrink a partition to get unallocated space, but this space can only be used to create new partitions or extend the source partition itself. If users want to extend partition when there is no unallocated/free space behind and adjacent to the target partition, turning to third-party partition manager would be the best choice. MiniTool Partition Wizard is available.
This partition manager provides users with a quite easy and useful way to resize partition C and D.
This is the main window of MiniTool Partition Wizard, where disk information and partition details are shown. To take free space from partition D to extend partition C, we need to make use of the function “Extend Partition”.
Firstly, select partition C and choose the function “Extend Partition” from action panel to get the following interface:
Then, choose partition D from the drop-down list of “Take Free Space from” to take free space to extend partition C and drag sliding button to decide how much free space to take. After that, click “OK” button to go back to the main interface:
Now, we can see partition C becomes 34.26GB from 24.26GB while partition D becomes 9.66GB from 19.67GB. That is to say partition C is extended while partition D is shrunk. At this time, as long as we click “Apply” button in toolbar, the problem how to resize partition C and D will be solved successfully.
