Windows 7 Disk Management Alternatives

Windows 7 built-in Disk Management

On one hand, Disk Management, which has basic and advanced partition features in Windows 7, is closely related to our daily life. For example, when we purchased a new hard disk, we have to format and partition it before using. If the Windows 7 hard drive has been partitioned and one of the volumes is in low disk space, particularly system or boot volume, we need to extend it to solve the low disk space warning problem.

On the other hand, Disk management, also known as Local Disk Manager, is an extension of the Windows snap-in Management Console that supports the complete management of the disk-based hardware recognized by Windows. It supports users to partition/format hard disk, resize/create/move/merge/split volume, and convert between FAT32 and NTFS, primary and logical partition and so on. Windows 7 DISK Management utility is prior to Windows2000/XP, for the two new functions "Extend Volume" and "Shrink Volume".

Three ways to open Windows 7 Disk Management

There are several ways for computer users to start Win7 Disk Management, the following are three typical methods, please choose the convenient one that you think:
