When the C drive is out of space or gets full or you simply get the low disk space warning, and hardware upgrades aren't an option, what are you going to do? Here are a few tips for you to Resize Windows OS Partition.

There are a few things you can do in these cases to extend C drive. These include:

This is a free partition manager software owning the ability to extend C drive without data loss and application reinstallation. Just follow the steps below, you can solve "C drive is out of space" quickly and safely.
