The way to increase disk partition size

  • The common way to increase disk partition size (C: partition for example) with traditional partition manager is shown: at first, users need to shrink a partition (shrink D: partition for example) to release an unallocated space behind and adjacent to C: partition, and then extend C: partition. What users need to notice is that traditional C: partition extension should be on the condition that there must be unallocated space behind and adjacent to C: partition.
