Partition Magic, the product of Symantec, is the most famous partition resize software under Windows 98, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Since being acquired by Symantec, Norton Partition Magic has not been upgraded. Maybe you can still use it under Windows 8, however, it is so unstable that you have great chance to meet problems or system crash when resizing Windows 8 partition. So I strongly recommend you not to use Partition Magic to resize Windows 8 partitions. I will show you how to resize Windows 8 partitions with partition magic alternative - EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition (Freeware) in this article.
As partition magic alternative software - EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition, offers a simple and convenient way to manage your partitions, runs well on Windows 8. Say, it enables you to extend the system partition, Create, Delete, Resize/Move, Copy, Merge, Split, Format partition under Windows 8.
Tips: Don't forget to backup your data with free backup software - EaseUS Todo Backup Free before resizing partitions.
1. Launch EaseUS Partition Master. As the picture showed below, there is no enough unallocated space to extend the system partition. So first, you have to decrease one of partitions to gain the unallocated space.
2. Select partition E:, and decrease it by clicking "Resize/Move partition" and then move it to let the unallocated space be behind the system partition.
3. Then select the system partition (C: drive), right click it and select "Resize/Move partition" to extend the C: drive.
4. Click Apply.
