System partition’s free space will greatly influence the performance of the computer. When the partition nearly gets full, the computer running speed will be slower than before. Furthermore, the Windows OS update will also be retarded. Here, many users will turn to Windows built in disk management tool to solve the problem. When there is unallocated space right behind the system partition, using the “Extend Volume” feature in disk management tool (DM for short) to enlarge the space is a wise movement. However, if there is no such kind of unallocated space, what can users do? How can they put non contiguous space into system partition? Due to the self-made limitations, the Windows DM and diskpart can not fulfill this mission. Now users had better rely on a third party partition manager. The MiniTool Partition Wizard Free is just a suitable one. Two ways will be introduced for users to add space to partition. Please look at information listed below.
Firstly, run the freeware to get its startup interface and click “Launch Application” to get the following window:
We can see from the screenshot above that drive D stands between the C: and the unallocated space. There are two methods to put non contiguous space into system partition.
Method 1: Use the “Move/Resize Partition” feature.
By this way, you can add the unallocated space to C drive and then enlarge it.
Step 1: Click on partition D and select “Move/Resize Partition” to go to the next interface.
Step 2: drag the whole partition handle to the right most. Then the handle’s location will be changed. Click “OK” to return to the main interface.
Note: the handle with 2 black triangles on each side stands for drive D and the blank part is unallocated space.
Step 3: Here we can preview the changes. Then click on “Apply”, and the operation of adding the unallocated space to partition C has been finished.
Finally, you can extend drive C in Disk Management or in MiniTool Partition Wizard.
Method 2: Perform the “Extend Partition” feature
Here, you can extend C: by borrowing free space from the non contiguous space.
Step 1: choose C and click “Extend Partition” button to enter into the next window.
Step 2: select the specified unallocated space to take free space and drag the sliding bar to the desired value. Then, with a click on “OK”, you will return to the main interface.
Step 3: click on “Apply” and all the operations will be executed.
Now I believe that you have known the way to put non contiguous space into system partition. By the two methods displayed above, you can get easy access to adding space to partition. Resort to MiniTool Partition Wizard next time, and then many questions in disk management will be answered.
