Extend a partition using unallocated space from any volume

If you are trying to extend volumes in a hard disk, then it is necessary that the unallocated space has to be lying next to the volume which is to be extended. But what if you want to extend another volume? which is not allowing you to extend the volume. There is a very solution for this, we can use MiniTool Parition Wizard Home Edition to do this.

Let’s see how we can do it.

First download and install the application software from the official site (Version 8.0 and above is recommended).

Now , Install it and run it.

As you can see there is 3.51 GB of unallocated space below the drive D, which I was unable to use to extend the drive C using default windows partition manager. But it can be really easily done using this application.

To extend C drive am clicking on C: using right mouse button and a drop down menu appeared.

And then, I will choose Extend, A new dialogue box will appear asking from where the free space is to be used. From drop down list choose Unallocated space and click ok.

Now,  Apply changes by clicking on Apply Button from the top left side of window. And then when it asked to Apply pending changes click yes.

Then the process will start, and it asks you to restart the computer after it, you allow it to restart. Then before the computer boots the window, it process and merge the drive with the unallocated space. Tadah, over.
