My Hard disc C, currently has been running with a very low space (2.55 gb to be specific), and this is really making my computer run very slow and still i cannot be able to store more due to space wise. my other partitioned hard drive has more space (47.98 gb free space), all i want is to reduce the space on D: and increase the space on C:. how do it.

Hi Martinm

 

You can use Disk Management tool to do so. It has features to create, reduce, extend the size of the existing and new disks. Before doing so it is recommended that you take a back up of your data. You can go to Disk Management tool thought My computer or typing the same in Run. Select the Disk you want to make changes go to the blue bar present at the bottom partitioned window of the Disk Management window. Right click on the blue bar and select from the options available like Extend volume, Shrink Volume or Delete Volume. Once done it will prompt extend window and you have to specify the desired specifications and click extend.

Hello Martinm.

Assuming that you want to repartition your hard disk without removing any of the data, the only way you can do it is to use a partition manager.  Unfortunately, you cannot use Windows disk management without losing the data on your hard drive.

Fortunately, there are several partition managers out there that can do the job for free.  Below are some of those applications:

1. Minitool Partition Wizard Home Edition (http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html)

2.  EASEUS Partition Master (Home Edition) (http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm)

3.  Paragon Partition Manager Free Edition (http://www.paragon-software.com/home/pm-express/download.html)

 

4.  GParted (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/)

Partition managers can let you create, move, resize, delete, or format partitions while ensuring that the data on it is kept intact and secure.

Hope this helps.
