Partition Windows 7 64 bit system with best partition manager
Recently, Windows 7 has become popular due to its highly publicized advantages over its predecessors. At the same time, how to manage Windows 7 partitions is a question that is becoming urgent for Windows 7 users.
About Windows 7 and 64 bit system
Windows 7 (formerly codenamed Blackcomb and Vienna) is the latest version of Microsoft Windows, a series of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and Professional desktops, laptops, tablet PCs and media center PCs. Windows 7 was released to manufacturing on July 22, 2009, with general retail availability set for October 22, 2009, less than three years after the release of its predecessor, Windows Vista. Windows 7's server counterpart, Windows Server 2008 R2, is slated for release at about the same time.
Consumers have had the option of 64-bit Windows computing since the release of Windows XP Professional x64 Edition in May 2005, four years after the release of Windows XP 32-bit. At the end of 2006, Windows Vista 32-bit and 64-bit versions were released simultaneously. Yet chances are you're currently using a machine that runs the 32-bit version of Windows.
This is about to change. Windows 64-bit has started to gain a significant foothold in the past two years as more systems ship with 3GB or more of memory. With Windows 7, 64-bit computing is likely to become even more common.
What's the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit computing? In a nutshell, the numbers refer to the amount of bits a computer can process in one computation. They also translate into the amount of random access memory (RAM) a computer can address. A 32-bit Windows computer can address a maximum of 4GB of RAM, while a 64-bit Windows machine can address up to 128GB and even more (64-bit applications can address theoretically up to 16 billion gigabytes of memory). So the higher number of bit means better computing, both in terms of precision and capability.
Since Windows 7 64 bit system has become the main trend.How can we insure good partition management?
The disk management function built in the system can only perform some basic partition managements. It cannot meet our needs.
Is it possible to perform partition management in a safe, easy and fast way?
MiniTool Partition Manager support both MBR and GUID partition table format running on 32/64 bits operating system, including Windows XP, Vista, Windows Server 2000/2003/2008 and the latest Windows 7.
With several steps, you can resize Windows 7 64 bit system with ease.
First, launch the software and you will see its user interface.
Click Move/Resize and you will see the following.
Here we choose to resize partition O. From the picture above, we can see partition O is 80G, while partition C is less than 30G. At the same time, we find that this disk has a large amount of free space. With the increase of applications installed, it is necessary for us to enlarge the backup partition O and the system partition C.
Next, we will resize partition O with MiniTool Partition Manager.
Enlarge partition O from 80 G to 150 G. Enlarge the whole partition by 60 G. Resize the system partition C and enlarge the partition C:
Lastly, apply changes, after that you will see:
Now, partition O and C are resized just by a few simple steps. All these processes are carried out under Enhanced Data Protection Mode, so you never have to worry about any data loss. MiniTool Partition Manager will ensure you the safety of your data.
