With the popularization of Windows 7, more and more people install this operating system on their hard drive. Compared with the old versions of Windows, Win7 has many new features, such as a new way to resize partition under certain condition. The size of disk space occupied by Win7 is larger than XP, so we may encounter the low disk space problem which is risky for our computer after upgrading XP to Win7. For this reason, a Windows 7 partition manager is needed to resize volume.
Like WindowsXP/2003/vista, Win 7 also has a snap-in Disk Management utility. It brings two new functions: Extend Volume and Shrink Volume, so resizing partition with Disk Management seems feasible. However, the extending function is not the available in some situations. For example, when there is no unallocated space behind the partition that we want to extend, the "Extend Volume" will be greyed out.
Due to the shortcoming of Win7 built-in partition manager, it is important to find a powerful and professional partition manager to manage partitions, such as Partition Magic, but it cannot work with Windows 7.
