How to remove partition

  • In computer hard disk managements, we not only need to create partitions and resize partitions but also need to remove some unnecessary partitions. Although we have partitioned the hard disk when installing operating system, this partition can not meet our changing storage demands. At this time, we will try repartitioning the hard disk. Naturally, unnecessary partitions will be removed, and the space unnecessary partitions release will exist as unallocated space. And then, we allocate these unallocated spaces to the partition needing extending so as to allocate hard disk space more reasonably. When deleting partitions, many people select Windows built-in disk management tool. However, Windows built-in disk management tool has many defects. For example, it can not help us remove partitions sometimes. Well then, what is the best method for deleting partitions? I suggest using professional partition magic MiniTool Partition Wizard which can help us remove partitions better.

    Principle of deleting partitions with MiniTool Partition Wizard
    In the process of starting, the computer will perform a series of updates automatically first, and then boot the operating system. At this time, BIOS will read and perform Master Boot Record. Then, MBR will read the information of active partition so as to boot operating system to start. Thus it can be seen, hard disk partition information is mainly recorded by hard disk partition table of the MBR and the boot record of operating system. MiniTool Partition Wizard empties the partition record information in hard disk partition table, and operating system will not find out the partition information in hard disk partition table and operating system boot record, so this partition can not be displayed. At this time, we say this partition is removed. With Windows built-in disk management tool, we only can remove those partitions except system partition while MiniTool Partition Wizard can remove any partition even if this partition is being used. Next, I will briefly demonstrate how to remove system partition with MiniTool Partition Wizard.

    From the main interface, we can see the system partition is removed, and the space released by the system partition exists as unallocated space in display list. However, this is just a preview this partition magic offers. To realize final operations, we need to click "Apply" to perform all operations.

    Note: operating system is unable to start if we remove system partition, so we must be cautious to use this function. The purpose of taking this example is just to prove MiniTool Partition Wizard can remove any partition.
