As we know, when using computer, we will encounter the situation that partition is full one day. If it is a data partition, we can delete un-necessary data and clean junks, or move files to another place. However, for system partition, above methods are not effectively. Because there are too many important data in it. We could migrate to SSD, for example, a bigger 64 GB or 128 GB ‘s new SSD. Another way is extending system partition. So, how to extend system partition? Usually is C: drive.
If you think the solution is with Windows built-in program – Disk Management, you are wrong. Disk Management can’t expand system partition, the option “Extend” is gray. Disk Management can’t move partition as well. To solve this, you need a third-party partition manager called AOMEI Partition Assistant.
