In general, the installation of a disk into 4 partitions, and sometimes the system partition C disk is too small, the data disk too many or C disk too much, other data disk is too small. There is even a single hard drive with all the capacity divided to the system disk. In short, the disk partition may not be reasonable, then how to solve it? The size of the hard disk partition needs to be resized, and the following are steps for partitioning the partition assistant to resize the partition.

Adjust partition instances

Task Environment:

Suppose a user's Windows 7 system has a 36GB disk with 3 partitions on it, a 100MB reserved partition e disk, the second is the system partition C disk 15.01GB, and the third is the data partition F disk 20.89GB.

Mission Objectives:

Because this system is a Windows7 system, the C disk only 15.01GB of capacity appears a bit small, so you want to adjust the system partition C disk size from 15GB to 20GB.

Operation Principle:

Since the F disk has extra space, it can divide some space from the F disk to C disk. That is, compress F to 15.90GB and enlarge C to 20GB.

Operation Steps
