Windows 7 is an excellent operating system. It followed Windows Vista in a short time. And it get rid of many defects of Windows Vista. So it occupied OS market rapidly.

Although it is excellent, runs smoothly, and has other advantages, it is imperfect too. For example, its built-in disk tool can only extend partition in Windows 7 backwards, not forwards. This method is very restrictive and not extensive.

So it will be necessary to find a third-party partition magic if we want to extend Windows 7 partition freely. So what is the free software?

First of all, with the help of the free software, we can extend partition in Windows 7 both backwards and forwards perfectly. AOMEI Partition Assistant is what a software we need.

Windows 7 Extend Partition

We can drag the double-headed arrow or square-headed arrow on both sides of the partition handle or input exact value to extend destination partition, and the extended space is determined by the available space around the partition. (pictured above)

Second, AOMEI Partition Assistant is easy to use. There is a “Extend Partition Wizard”(see below), every step is equipped with corresponding prompts so we can accomplish extending partition in Windows 7 even if we do not have any deep understanding of partition extending.

What’s more, the standard edition is free for both home users and commercial users.

Under the help of Partition Assistant, we can easily&fast create/delete and merge/split the partition and the most advantage is that it resize/move your partition to readjust the partition volume on the basis that it ensures the security of your data. So I think AOMEI Partition Assistant is a good choice for Windows 7.
