Compared with common hard disk, solid state disk (SSD for short) is fast in speed but small in capacity. As a result, partitions on SSD are always small, and the situation where a certain partition runs out of space is quite commonly seen. So how can users deal with this situation effectively? It is proved that the best solution is to resize partition on SSD by using specific tools. Well then, which kind of partition tool is suitable to change SSD partition size? In the following content, we will give a brief introduction.
In Windows operating systems there are 2 built-in tools to resize partition, namely Disk Management tool and DiskPart (of course, only Windows Vista and Windows operating systems released after this system are added with functions to resize partition), but both of them have a big defect. To be specific, these 2 tools will fail to extend partition if there is no unallocated space located behind the partition which needs extending. Therefore, users had better employ third-party partition manager to resize partition on SSD.
Nevertheless, partition magic which can help realize safe and easy resizing is so limited that most users have difficulties in finding such a piece of excellent software. For these users, they can try using MiniTool Partition Wizard.
Firstly, launch the partition manager to open the main interface:
In the main interface, please select the partition which needs resizing and choose a suitable function from the left action panel. There are multiple functions provided to change partition size, like “Move/Resize Partition”, “Extend Partition”, “Merge Partition”, and “Split Partition”. After selecting a desired function, users will be given specific prompts. Please take operations according to these prompts. At last, users should remember to click the functional button “Apply” in toolbar to apply changes to computer.
So far, all work to resize partition on SSD is finished. Try it now.
