Updated on Dec 05, 2018 by Jean to Partition Master

The free partition manager software, EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition, helps you to resize C drive partition and manage disk partitions to solve problem of running out of space, avoiding the declining performance of your computer.

The Importance of C: Drive

The primary function of C: drive is usually to provide a means of permanent storage for the operating system and other files required to "boot" the machine. Hard drives can reliably store this data even while powered off or physically removed from the computer. The C: drive is also the default drive, and it is where specific files are expected to be found by the operating system while booting the system. Also, the C: drive stores data in an orderly manner. The C: drive is also called system partition.

Why Do We Need to Resize C: Drive

No matter which kind of operating system you have installed, the scheduled size of C: drive could not always meet your needs, as Windows continues to download a large number of updates. If C: drive is running out of place and struggles for precious unallocated space, you are unable to install new programs again. And the whole performance of your computer will decline. For example, the computer goes slow. Then you must change the size of the C: drive. Although some operating systems, such as Windows Server 2008, provide you with partition resize utility, it has some limitations. You also have some other choices such as cleaning up the hard disk drive or upgrading to a larger hard disk. But the best choice for you should be turning to a third party partition manager software to extend your system partition - the C: drive. EaseUS Partition Master is just the right partition software to resize your partition.
