  • IM-Magic Partition Resizer Free (free, fast and risk-free)

    Minitool Partition Wizard Home Edition (a little bit complicated)

    http://partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html.

    EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition (time-consuming)

    I had ever also wanted to add more free space to my full C drive. After I had failed to do that in Disk Management, I finally founded the listed partition managers that might help me. So, I trued them all on by one. The first one, the best of three, had eventually resized my C drive successfully and also without data loss. Moreover, uniquely, it even caused no damage to my computer system, even when I accidentally ended its resizing process. As to the second and third one, one was a little bit complicated for me to grasp and the other one is time-consuming. Most importantly, they needed to be paid for advanced features.

    Therefore, I hope you can select a proper one for your computer according to your won conditions.

    Note: Never forget to back up everything important before the extending process in case of any data loss.

    Thanks for your recommended partition tools. I have tried them, when my C drive has only 245 MB of free space left. In fact, I’ve planed to try all your tools one by one at first. But, after trying the first IM-Magic partition tool, I just have extended my C drive successfully in half minutes. Is it amazing?

    By the ways, your note words are really considerately for me. I nearly forget to back up my important data at first.

    Thank you very much!

  • I just did, Extended Volume is disabled for C drive because there is no "Unallocated " drive beside it. For example choose any drive D or E and shrink it. You will find unallocated drive beside that drive D or E . If you have unallocated beside D then you will be only able to extend the drive D.

    In my case i too wanted to extend my C drive. Had some 50gb free space in my D drive. what i did is, i first took the backup of D drive in external harddisk. I then formatted the D drive, then went to disk management and right click on D drive and "Delete Volume...", [NOTE: D drive that i'm talking about is the very adjacent drive to C:/ drive as we want unallocated volume beside C:/, in your case the letter migght be different T or W but make sure that its the next volume to C:/]

    now in disk management after C:/ drive there will be black unallocated drive. Now right click on C drive and you will find the option "Extend Volume" now click on next and suppose you D drive was 100gb and you only want to assign 50gb to C drive so in the input space fill in 50gb in MB (50023) , in your case its 80GB . then you see that C drive is extended and click on the remaining unallocated volume, select new volume and assign it D again.

    Hope you liked the solution. there are many given in google with many 3rd party applications..dont fall for 3rd party. Do it manually and its simple.

    Cheers
