XP partition resize

  • In most cases, when we install Windows XP operating systems to a new computer, disk space will be divided into several partitions. If we need to create a new partition (for example when we need to save files separately or install other operating systems), but there is some important data saved in partitions, we should perform Windows XP partition resize. Windows XP has built-in disk management tool but it doesn't have resize partition function. With DOS order, we can resize Windows XP partition.
