What to do when you want to resize your partition

Hello Evelozano.
Yes, you will need a third-party application to resize and/or move your partitions.  I personally use Minitool Partition Wizard Home Edition 7.
It will let you create, delete, move, resize, format partitions on your Windows computer.  The good news is it's free!  
Just as with any tool that manipulates hard disk data, be sure to keep a backup of all your important files prior to running this partition manager.
Another freeware partition manager that you could check out is EaseUS® Partition Master 9.1.1 Home Edition (https://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm).  It's just as good as Minitool and just as simple to use.  You can't go wrong with either partition manager.  Just be sure to keep your file backups ready and, if possible, make sure your laptop is connected to the AC mains or your desktop has a UPS to prevent sudden shutdowns while in the middle of applying changes to the partitions.

What to do when you want to resize your partition


Hi there , 

I think you need help regarding the resizing of partition in windows vista OS .

Glad at least you seemed to be specific regarding your problem.

You actually don't need a third party application for doing it. Windows has embedded a Computer management tool which has things that just you need that is to manage the partitions .

Follow my steps precisely : – 

1. Right click on computer

2. Click on the manage.

3.In that a dialog box appears.

4. Select disk management in the left box and wait until it loads and comes.

5. In that you can see all the logical drives in your PC and the details of it.

6. Right click the drives and you can see the shrink (to decrease the memory ) and extend (to increase).
