I'll second gparted

by dldorrance In reply to Always free:

To add, subtract and resize partitions. As this is a Linux program, Windows partitions will be labelled HDa, HDb (or SDa, SDB), etc, rather than the Windows designation C:, etc. The H stands for PATA HDD's, and the S stands for SATA HDD's. HDa or SDa is the bootable partition.

Other than partition labelling peculiarities of Linux, the program looks and works similar to any other disk partitioning software. Download the ISO file and burn to a CD, then reboot your computer from the CD. Free download here http://gparted.sourceforge.net/download.php

Do you have a second partition?

by TheChas In reply to Free partition software t ...

Keep in mind that unless your hard drive has a second partition that has sufficient free space, a partition manager is not going to do you any good. You cannot expand your system partition if there is no place to expand to.

Depending on how your system is configured, it may make a lot more sense for you to buy a larger hard drive and then copy the image of your existing drive to the new drive using the drive manufactures utilities.

If your hard drive does have an existing second partition, your free and safe option is to move your personal files to the second partition. That way, you both free up hard drive space and you can back up your files quickly.

If you do use a partition manager, make sure to BACKUP your system first. While they work very well, there is always some risk of a system crash and loosing everything.

All I could think when I read the original post was "Software isn't going to make the disk any bigger. If it's full, it's full."

I loved partition magic before, the best software I've ever used. Unfortunately, no upgrade.
easeus partition manager software is the wonderful substitute with my three computers with OS Windows 7 64 bit. What's more,home version is free for the 64 bit.
