Windows XP built-in disk management utility can help create, delete and format partition. However, things become complex when it comes to increase partition size in Win XP. When seeing the low disk space warning, you can not extend the specified partition by using the built in disk management tool. To fix this problem, on one hand, you can cleanup useless files. On the other hand, moving the large files to other partition (a time wasting way) may also be adopted. However, those two ways are not easy to be operated. Is there any suitable way? Actually, resorting to third party partition manager is worth trying. For better disk partition management in Windows XP, I’d like to recommend users to apply the professional partition manager – MiniTool Partition Wizard . It can help users extend partition with ease.
Please download the partition magic in the official website. Then install it to you computer. After that, launch the program to get into the main interface.
1. It is the main interface of the partition manager. If you want to extend partition in Win 7, please choosing the specified partition and click “Move/Resize” button from the left panel.
2. Here, you can drag sliding bar or input desired value in the textbox to extend partition. In this case, left dragging the black triangle can increase the Win XP partition size. Then click “OK” button to return to the main interface.
In this window, we can preview that the specified partition has been successfully extended to 77.43GB (the original capacity is 54.96GB).
