    About “Extend Partition”


    Extend Partition directly takes free space from any other existing partitions or unallocated space to enlarge a partition on the same disk while “Move/Resize Partition” requires contiguous unallocated space. Under the following 2 situations, “Extend Partition” is suggested:
    1.Extend a partition to non-contiguous unallocated or free space.
    2.There is no unallocated or free space on the disk.
