Does anyone know if Partition Magic 8 will work in Windows 7? I have a partition that I would like to delete and just redistribute that free space into another partition. Does Windows 7 have any built in tools to do that?
I face a problem of low disk space in the C drive or "C drive is out of space" after I installed Windows 7. I have assigned 19.5 GB for my C drive. Now I want to extend C drive. How do I do that? The total capacity of my hard disk is 180 GB. Please help!
I want to resize my partition C in which Windows XP is installed and spare some space to install Windows 7 and keep a dual-boot between Windows XP and Windows 7. This will cause a resize of a local disk C: and D: (there are already data to the interior). Is it possible to resize partitions under Windows 7 without data loss?
Just as the above request indicates, the reason why to have a Windows 7 partition manager to manage the disk contains the following items:
Windows 7 built in disk management has ability to extend volume and shrink volume.
If you try to extend partition E by using the unallocated space before partition E, there will be a warning box as below. It means that if you continue the step, the basic disk will be converted to dynamic disk. If you converted the disk to dynamic, you cannot convert dynamic disk back to basic with Windows 7 disk management, except using a third party Windows 7 partition manager.
So there must be unallocated space behind partition E if you want to extend partition E by "Extend Volume" feature of Windows 7 built in disk management. If there is no unallocated space behind partition E, a third party Windows 7 partition manager is required.
