Delete Hard Drive

  • Hard drive is the main storage device of our computer. Most users regard the storage areas that are marked with "A-Z" as hard drives. That is wrong. Actually, they are partitions used on basic disk or volume used on dynamic disk. They are forms of saving data and files. The difference is that hard drive number is fixed but partition and volume number is changeable.

    Too few partitions

    If there is only one partition in your computer, the partition size may be almost the same with your hard drive. Large size doesn't mean good. You have no other partition to save data and files but save all information to one partition where your system information is. It will affect system speed and data accessing speed. What's more, once the computer is attacked by virus and the system crashes, all data will lose. That is terrible. Therefore, I think the best way is to use professional partition magic to repartition hard drive. Among all disk management software, I strongly recommend you MiniTool Partition Wizard. It has comprehensive disk management functions. Its expertise deserves your trust.

    Too many partitions
    Your newly-bought Notebook may already be partitioned with several partitions. With long time use, the present partition mode cannot satisfy you any more. Too many partitions leads to small capacity of single partition, and unbalanced partition usage rate. This is a hard nut to crack. Too many partitions is neither convenient for us to manage disk nor access data and files. Most users try to back up data in advance and then delete some partitions. Windows built-in disk management tool is able to do this work. But after deleting, we can only extend the partition located in front of the deleted partition (and some Windows built-in disk management tools have no extend partition function). So it is strongly suggested to use third-party partition magic to delete hard drive partition and resize partition. MiniTool Partition Wizard is the best choice for you. It has "Move/Resize" function to resize partition and change partition position. Thus MiniTool Partition Wizard helps you solve the problem of too many partitions from the root.
