Partition Magic Can't Resize Windows 10 Partition

Partition Magic, the product of Symantec, is the most important partition resize software under Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP. Since being acquired by Symantec, Norton Partition Magic has not been upgraded. Maybe you can still use it under Windows 10. However, it is so unstable that you have a great chance to meet problems or system crash when resizing Windows 10 partition.

So I strongly recommend you not to use it to resize Windows 10 partitions. I will show you how to resize Windows 8 partitions with a partition magic alternative - EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition (Freeware) in this article.

  • It won't hot image your drives or align them, but since it's coupled with a partition manager, it allows you do perform many tasks at once, instead of just cloning drives. You can move partitions around, resize them, defragment, and more, along with the other tools you'd expect from a cloning tool.
