How to manage HDD partition in Windows 7?
If you want to extend the existing drives directly on the disk, the "Extend
Partition Wizard" option can help you. It is extremely handy for the system
drive, for it can fully use the unused space on other drives. What's more, you
don't have to reboot the operating system.
Step 1: Install and start AOMEI Backupper, and click the "Extend
Partition Wizard" in the left wizard column. Then, there will be two choices
for you. Choose the first one and click "Next" twice.
Step 2: Tick up one or more drives in the list, and select "Next".
Assume that you select D: and E:. In the next window, drag the slider rightwards. In
the dragging process, you will see C: becomes larger, while D: and E: are smaller.
Then, follow the wizard to finish the task.
How to change partition size easily?
As it mentioned above, here is an example to shrink C: easily.
Step 1: Start the freeware and right-click C: to choose "Resize
Partition". Drag the double-headed arrow leftwards and click "OK".
After that, you will preview the changes.
Step 2: Check the operations in the "Pending Operation"
column. If there’s something wrong, click "Undo" or "Discard" to
cancel them. Then, please choose "Apply" to commit the task.
Tips: Above methods also workable in Windows 10, 8, XP and
Vista since AOMEI Backupper Standard supports these systems. To allocate free space
from one partition to another directly, please upgrade to Professional edition.
It's ok to extend drive with this option and the operating steps are nearly the
same. The only difference is to drag the slider bar to the right, which is opposite
to above. Meanwhile, there must be unallocated space rightly behind C:. If it is not
directly behind C, please use the function "Move Partition" to transfer
it. Just follow the wizard, and all the tasks will be fulfilled perfectly. What’s
more, you can create a partition directly from any volume that has redundant space.
