I recently installed Windows 7 on dynamic disk with one boot volume and two other volumes. However, I didn’t make the boot partition large enough and I need to extend it. I tried some ways (such as built-in disk management tool) but they did not work. Is there any way to resize dynamic boot disk partition in Windows 7 without influencing the original data?
As we know, dynamic boot disk partition is the system reserved volume in Windows. And in most situations, the boot volume is contained in system volume. And, if the space of the dynamic boot volume is not enough, the speed of running the computer is slow. At this time, users can resize boot volume to get a desired volume size.
Windows 7 built-in disk management tool cannot meet users’ needs as the “Extend Volume” only works with contiguous unallocated space on the right side of the volume users would like to extend. At this time, users can turn to third-party software to resize Windows 7 dynamic boot volume. Nevertheless, since most partition magic software has functional defects or security defects, many users will suffer heavy losses after using such kind of debased software, including economic loss. Here, I strongly suggest MiniTool Partition Wizard as it has high security, perfect performance and easy operations.
Users should download and install this partition magic software on computer at first. Then, run it to get its main interface as follows:
To resize Windows 7 dynamic boot volume, users can take the following steps:
Step 1: select D volume and click “Move /Resize Volume” in the Operations. And then drag the left triangle of the volume handle to the right or enter accurate values in the text-boxes below to shrink the volume. After that, click “OK” button. (Note: increasing volume should be on the condition that there is contiguous unallocated space. There, we can get the unallocated space by shrinking D volume.)
Step 2: 50.8 GB unallocated space is created between C volume and D volume. Then, click “Apply” button to execute this operation. After that, users can resize dynamic boot disk partition in Windows 7.
Step 3: Select the dynamic boot volume (C volume) and click “Move /Resize” button in the Toolbar. In the pop-up window, drag the right triangle of the volume handle to extend the volume. After that, click “OK” to go back to the main interface.
Step 4: users can preview that Windows 7 dynamic boot volume has increased from 24.26 GB to 75.1GB. After that, click “Apply “ to execute all changes.
Note: Users should not worry about the data security, since this partition magic software can expand, move, resize and shrink volume without data loss.
