Updated on Dec 04, 2018 by Tracy King to Partition Master

Summary:
When a logical partition gets low storage space, you may not be able to save more data on it. And somehow, it may even affect your computer performance. EaseUS Partition Master allows you to extend/expand logical partition on Windows 10/8/7//XP/Vista for free in four steps.

Why need extend/expand logical partition

Partitioning the hard drive is not our daily work in disk management, while it is a necessary task when Windows system warning " C drive is out of space", "Low disk space", "There is not enough space available on the disk to complete this operation", etc. Most new computers would come up with such problems, so in this article you’ll know how to extend/expand logical partition easily with partition manager software and solve low disk space problem.

Solutions to extend logical partition

When it comes to extending logical partition, there are several ways available here for you to try.

1. If your system is Windows Vista/7 or higher, you can directly use the Disk Management Tool built-in Windows Vista/7 to do some simple partitioning work like extend/shrink partition (system or logical partition).

But enough unallocated space required is a prerequisite. Otherwise, it is still not working.

2. If you are an expert in Windows, you can use Diskpart to resize or extend partition on the hard drive.

Diskpart is powerful, but considering data security, it’s not suitable for inexperienced Windows users.

3. If you get the message: "there is not enough space on the disk to complete this operation", it means that Windows disk management failed to extend logical partition.

If you know little about computer, no doubt, a third-party partition manager tool is the best choice you turn to for help. To expand a logical partition, EaseUS Partition Master will be your best choice.
