When need partition magic software in Windows 10 or 11?

For the users of Windows 10, you may usually come across the problems such as your computer is warned as low disk space, there is little free space in one partition while the other partition has enough free space, or you need to more partitions for storing your different data. In order to solve the problems, you may wonder to know that is there free partition magic for Windows 10 to manage my disks and partitions?

With the daily increasing data, managing disks and partitions in Windows 10/11 has become more and more important. But when it comes to managing partitions, different people have different ideas, but there are 2 commons partition magic tools introduced as follows:

1. Try Windows built-in Disk Management

Disk Management is a built-in tool in Windows 11/10/8/7 that allows you to create/delete/shrink/extend partition. There are many users who choose this tool to manage their partition because it does not require you to download any third-party software. However, there are some limitations in this tool. For example, when you extending partition, the  "Extend Volume" feature is only available/clickable when there is unallocated space adjacent to and right after the drive you want to expand.

In the following picture, you will find Extend Volume grayed out because there is no unallocated space next to C drive. So the limitation will bring inconvenience to you. In this case, the only way to extend system partition is to delete the partition behind C: drive. Or you can find a way to move the partition in the middle to make the C drive adjacent to the unallocated space. Since the Disk Management does not offer such a feature to move partitions, it is necessary to turn to some third-party software.
