How to Redistribute Free Space in Windows 7?
The necessity of redistributing free space
Sometimes, our hard drive is divided into a small C: drive and a relatively big data partition. Meanwhile, C: drive keeps running out of space, how can we make use of the free space to enlarge C: drive? As we know, there is "Extend Volume" feature in Disk Management, to extend a partition, there must be contiguous unallocated space behind it.
What if the unallocated space is not behind C: drive? In the scenario below, on disk 1, the contiguous unallocated space is behind G: drive, which means only G: drive could be extended. If we want to extend C: drive, we must switch the positions of the unallocated space and G: drive.
If so, we need to find solution to the problem. Fortunately, we've got the alternative of Disk Management - Aomei Partition Assistant Pro Edition
