You must be familiar with the left starting window of Windows XP and maybe many users are using this operating system even now. Those users perhaps have ever encountered the problem of lack of partition space. Although most users may schedule disk space carefully when installing Windows XP, they can not predict data size and data types that lie ahead, so some partitions are likely to lack space and others may have much unused space. In this situation, there are two solutions: one is to store the new data to the partitions having much unused space, which will make data mixed; the other is to increase Windows partition size.

Nevertheless, along with the development of software technology, partition magic helping Windows XP users extend Windows partition appears in the market, with which users can increase Windows partition size easily and the professional free partition magic MiniTool Partition Wizard is suggested.
