Remove partition

  • In computer hard disk management, users not only need to create partitions, resize partition, but also need to remove some unnecessary partitions sometimes. Although users have partitioned the hard disk when installing operating system, original partitions may not meet later actual demand for storing data in most the times. At this time, users will consider readjusting hard disk partitions. Naturally, those unused partitions will be removed, making the space occupied by deleted partitions exist in form of unallocated partition. Then, users can distribute this unallocated space to those partitions needed to expand, which can make partitions more reasonable. Many users may choose the built-in Disk Administrator when removing partitions, but functions of this kind of tool are limited. Sometimes, we can not remove partitions with it. What is the best way to remove partitions? I suggest using MiniTool Partition Wizard, a professional partition magic which can help users remove partitions better.

    Computers will accomplish a series of detection and renewal automatically when starting, and then they will start operating system. At this time, BIOS will read and perform MBR in hard disk, and then MBR will find out the active partition from main partition table. Next, MBR will read and perform operating system boot record in active partition. At last, operating system boot record will read information in active partition to boot operating system to start. Thus it can be seen, partition information in hard disk is mainly recorded by hard disk partition table and operating system boot record in MBR. MiniTool Partition Wizard empty record information in the partition needed to remove in disk partition table while operating system will not see and find out the information of this partition in hard disk partition table and operating system boot record so that it can not display this partition.
