you can extend the partition you want to use with the MiniTool partition software

You can extend partition with the partition manager software, it is much easer and efficient,and it will solve your problems. Based on my own experience, the MiniTool partition manager software is a good one, you can have a try. There are several ways to start Move/Resize operation:

Select the partition you would like to extend» click Partitions in the top menu » click Resize./click the Move/Resize Partition button in the Tool Bar. /click the Move/Resize Partition button under Partition Operations in the Action Panel.

For example: Disk is configured as 2 partitions. Partition C & F. C is system partition. Goal is to extend 4 GB free space to partition C.

Step 1: Create 4GB free space
Shrink drive F to get 4 GB free space between drive C and drive F. Please select drive F from Partition Wizard, and click Move/Resize button from the toolbar. You will see the popup window like the following screenshot. And then drag the left border of the partition to the right to shrink this partition. And then click "OK" button.

Step 2: 4 GB unallocated space is created between drive C & drive F. And then please select drive C, and click "Move/Resize" button from the toolbar again.

Step 3. Position the mouse pointer to the right edge of the partition. Please drag mouse to the right to extend C partition when the mouse pointer changes to a double-headed arrow. And then click "OK" button.
And then you could see your drive C is extended.

Step 4: Click "Apply" button.

If the space of the partition is not enough, you can shrink the free space in other partitions to enlarge the capacity of this partition. In this case, the security of data is ensured.

Your data would not be destroyed or go missing when extend partitions around.

What's more, under Enhanced Data Protecting Mode, you can execute the extend operation to system partitions or boot partition without harming the data.


boot, error, move, partition
