Vista resize partition

  • Windows Vista aroused controversy among many computer users since it was released before long. Some users think Windows Vista is a good operating system because this operating system is released by Microsoft after more than 5 years' research and it makes much breakthrough in many aspects. For example, Windows Vista introduces the brand new interface style Windows Aero and the security mechanism Windows Defender. Therefore, compared with Windows XP, Windows Vista makes greater breakthrough in interface effect and safety. Of course, there are another part of users who think this operating system has poor compatibility, wastes a large number of resources, and requires pretty high hardware configuration. However, as Microsoft updates it unceasingly, these kinds of problems have been solved.

    Although Microsoft is continuously updating Windows Vista, users will also meet various kinds of computer problems if they have used this operating system for a long time. For example, the computer runs slower and slower. Actually, the main reason leading to this problem is that system partition space becomes less and less. As is well known, all programs running on computer need performing by internal memory. In order to avoid the situation where the internal memory is used up because of running so many programs, virtual memory is employed. Therefore, virtual memory will influence computer running speed to a certain extent. However, the default setting of virtual memory is on system partition. Once system partition is out of space, virtual memory is restricted. Therefore, it is pretty important to resize Vista system partition. However, Vista system partition resizing can not be realized easily, because much partition magic does not update technology when Windows Vista was just released. As a result, the majority of partition magic can not run under Vista well, so it was difficult to resize Vista system partition. However, this problem was solved before long.
