Extend primary partition Windows 7

  • As a bellwether of software development industry, MiniTool Solution Ltd. has released a series of excellent products, and MiniTool Partition Wizard is one of its master pieces. Before using this partition magic, many users just have a superficial understanding of partition management technology. They think good partition management can be realized as long as they accomplish basic partition management like creating partition, deleting partition and formatting partition. But after using MiniTool Partition Wizard, users begin to realize partition management is a profound technology. Partition management not only includes creating partition, deleting partition, and formatting partition, but contains extending partition, shrinking partition, merging partitions, and other operations. Therefore, MiniTool Partition Wizard is an excellent partition magic which guides users to further research partition management.

    Some users may ask what advantages MiniTool Partition Wizard has compared with other partition management tools now that it is so meaningful. For this question, users can find answers after downloading it from its official website https://www.partitionwizard.com/ and using it, such as comprehensive partition management competence, easy and fast operations, and good flexibility. Let's compare MiniTool Partition Wizard with Windows 7 built-in disk management tool. MiniTool Partition Wizard has more comprehensive management operations, and even for the operations of the same function, it is faster and easier to operate this partition magic. For example, extending primary partition in Windows 7 with Windows 7 built-in disk management tool can not be realized unless there is unallocated space behind the primary partition. If there is no unallocated space behind the primary partition, users have to delete the neighboring partition. But if users choose the professional partition magic MiniTool Partition Wizard, the situation will be different. This partition magic not only can resize partition but can move partition. Even if the unallocated space is nonadjacent to primary partition, we still can use it to extend primary partition after moving its location. Maybe, it is difficult to understand the specific operating steps only through the above introduction. Next, let's get to know detailed steps through operating demonstration.

    Extend primary partition in Windows 7 with MiniTool Partition Wizard
    After downloading this partition magic from its official website and installing it to the computer, we run it to enter its main interface:

    From the main interface, we can see the unallocated space is nonadjacent to primary partition.

But we can move the location of the unallocated space by using the function "Move/Resize" of MiniTool Partition Wizard, like the following interface shows:

    After resizing, we can see the unallocated space is neighboring to the primary partition. Select the primary partition and click "Move/Resize" functional button to extend primary partition in Windows 7.

Even if you know nothing about partition management technology, you also do not need to worry you are unable to use this partition magic to manage partition correctly. Moreover, the main interface shows us numerous partition management functions.
