User could employ MiniTool Partition Wizard, the powerful yet free partition magic software to extend boot partition on Windows 7 safely if necessary.
Windows 7, the latest PC operating system issued by Microsoft in 2009, enjoys more powerful performances and eye-pleasing interfaces. Still a host of Windows XP users are trying to employ Windows 7. Since Windows 7 is new to them, committing mistakes is inextricable while they are using Windows 7, for example, it is very common for new Windows 7 user to fail to allocate inadequate space for operating system, which consequently results in tardy operating speed and low performance. If we install only one operating system, namely, Windows 7, on the computer, the system partition and boot partition are the same one though they assume discrepancies. So what should we do to release more free space for system and boot partition? In my opinion, the optimum solution is to extend boot partition with third-party partition magic software, such as MiniTool Partition Wizard.
