Here are some of its main partition management features:

  • Expand the C partition or other partitions using nonadjacent unallocated space
  • Move partitions to the left or right, front or end of the disk, without losing data
  • Compatible with Windows 11/10/8.1/8/7/XP
  • Shrink/extend/resize/format BitLocker partitions

Here is how to resize a disk or a partition on a Windows PC using EaseUS Partition Master:

Step 1. Shrink partition to free up space to extend partition.

If the hard drive has enough unallocated space to extend the target partition, jump to Step 2, and continue. If not, free up space first:

  • At the Partition Manager section, right-click on a partition next to the target partition and select "Resize/Move".
  • Drag the partition ends to free up space, leaving enough unallocated space behind the target partition, click "OK".

Step 2. Extend the target partition.

Right-click on the target partition you want to extend and select "Resize/Move".

2. Disk Management

Disk Management built-in Windows 10/11/8/7 can help with some simple partition management for free, such as expanding, shrinking, creating, deleting, and formatting partitions. It can help you resize Windows 10 partition, but it has the following limitations:

⚒️Disk Management can only expand adjacent space. When the unallocated space is not adjacent to the target partition, Disk Management requires the user to delete the middle partition before performing subsequent operations, which may cause data loss.

⚒️Besides, it can't resize FAT32 partitions; shrinking or extending volume is only available for NTFS and exFAT partitions.

Here is how to extend or shrink volume using Disk Management:

Step 1. Right-click on the Windows Start menu and select Disk Management.

Step 2. Right-click the partition/volume you want to resize and select the "Extend Volume" function or "Shrink Volume" function to resize the partition. Here, we take shrinking the partition as an example. If you want to shrink your Windows 10 volume, you can select Shrink Volume.

Step 3. Enter the amount of space to shrink (in MB). Then click "Shrink" and wait for a while.

Disk Management is not our best choice by any means because of its limitations; it does not allow users to perform various disk management operations; many errors like "extend volume grayed out" and "format volume grayed out" may usually occur. Therefore, if you are a beginner, we still recommend you move to the best free partition software - EaseUS Partition Master.

3. Diskpart

CMD consists of a command line and associated scripting language, as well as a task automation and configuration management framework. Users can use Diskpart to resize partitions. However, this method can easily cause data loss and is difficult for beginners. Follow the steps below to shrink a partition using Diskpart.

Step 1. Open your PC and hit Windows + R to bring up the run box.

Step 2. Type diskpart and press the Enter key.

Step 3. Type the following commands and press the Enter key each time:

  • list volume (Note the number of volumes to shrink.)
  • select Volume A ("A" refers to the target volume number.)
  • shrink desierd=10240 (Replace the number With the size you want to shrink in MB)

Shrinking a partition may fail if there are unmovable files or unsupported file systems on the hard drive or partition. Additionally, if you do not specify a required size, CMD will reclaim the maximum amount of free space.

In order to avoid these possible errors and failures, you can click the blue button below to install the simpler Disk partition resizer directly.

Editor's Thought

When there is no contiguous unallocated space behind the partition to be extended, you are unable to extend C drive or other partitions with Windows Disk Management, and Diskpart is difficult for beginners; additionally, both require you to delete the partition first when the target partition is not adjacent to the unallocated space. Both Disk Management and Diskpart can cause data loss. Therefore, EaseUS Partition Master is the most trustworthy Windows partition resizer tool.
