Solved Partitioning HDD in Windows 7 Computer Management

April 9, 2015 at 10:23:10
Specs: Windows 7, 4GB
Currently, I have 67.33GB of free space inside the green box and I want to merge that free space into my Windows 7 hard disk because it is running low on hard disk space which is not inside the green box. How do I solve this problem?

"Is Extend Parition the correct tool to use?"

No. Are the partitions adjacent to each other? Use the Merge tool to combine them.

I recommend using EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition.

Hi, I think I used the bootable version of EaseUS to extend the partition but it didn't work and instead it save more disk space without extending the partition. Any others to recommend?

EaseUS is probably one of the best. What do you mean it saved more disk space? You can't save more space then you already have. Read the instructions if you are confused on how to perform the operation.

Disk Manager should allow you to extend the current partition if the unallocated space it directly after it on the physical drive.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

THX 1138, I have more free disk space after I extended the partition which didn't extend and I know it's weird that it saved more disk space that's why I'm looking for alternative that can extend partition on Windows.

EaseUS is a program you install. It's extremely simple & safe to use. You can combine partitions, resize, create, etc. Try it!

There is a bootable version isn't it? It won't work for the installed one because when I extend partition it prompted me to restart and it didn't continue after that that's why I used the bootable version and it didn't work too. Is Extend Parition the correct tool to use?

Disk Manager is part of Windows. It can only do it if the free space is directly after the partition you want to extend. Otherwise you will need to use the tool riider recommends as a merge.
