Resize The Partition!!!

actually i have a 4 HD with 500Gb for each one, but i made a big mistake by make the primary partition size 20GB, and as you all know this storage is not enough for windows vista ultimate 64BIT and it's ubdate, SO
how i can resize the primary partition to make it more bigger WITHOUT FORMATING, or losing the data in this partition?

Make the partition immediately after this 20GB partition smaller. Then, make the 20GB partition bigger.

No problem. Put the hard drive in a vise and pull one end hard for about ten minutes and this should take care of resizing

Re: RESIZE THE PARTITION!!!

Since the partition will generally remove any released space at the end of the partition, you will probably have to delete the following partition, expand into the freespace and then recreate your following partition. Third party partitioning software would allow you to do this better.

Re: RESIZE THE PARTITION!!!

Numbers! We need numbers!

As John Barnes said, several users have reported success with deleting that following partition, then extending C:, and then recreating the other partition(s). But we can't make solid recommendations without knowing more about the size of the other partitions and how full they may be. The key to expanding the System Partition is that there must be Free Space immediately following it. If you don't have that space, then you must create it.

For example, if that 480 GB is a single partition but only 100 GB of it is used, then you could shrink it down to 120 GB (leave some elbow room). Then you could create a new 120 GB volume following it and move all the data to the new partition. Then you could delete the original partition and expand your first partition to use some or all of that space. And all without using any third-party products; it's all built into Vista, especially Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc).

Many variations are possible, but they depend on how much free space you have or can create - contiguous to your system partition - to work with. With your 4 big drives, you may be able to just move the data from the first HD to another one - and then move it back later, if you like. Disk Management's Help file is somewhat obtuse, but full of useful information if you can work your way through its focus on topics that most users never get involved with, such as dynamic drives and GPT disks. Type "extend" into Help's search box to find a half-dozen pages on this topic.

And while you can do this in diskmgmt.msc, it's a lot easier and more flexible to do it with Acronis or one of the other third party tools. you can do it with "gparted"

Resize partitions

Nowadays, computer is becoming more and more popular and we even can not work without it. We complain a lot of its low speed; we complain a lot when there is not enough space of partitions, etc. Commonly, FAT32 and NTFS are the main types of partitions. How can we resize FAT32 and NTFS partitions? EASEUS Partition Manager Home Edition - free for home users; resize any FAT32 / NTFS partition in Windows without destroying data.

FAT32 - File Allocation Table 32, is a file system used in computer. It is created to overcome the volume size limit of FAT16. The maximum possible size for a file on a FAT32 volume is 4 GB minus 1 "null" byte (232−1 bytes).

NTFS - New Technology File System, the standard file system of Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 (the successor to Windows Server 2003, releaed on February 27, 2008; includes server code - a significantly scaled-back installation where no Windows Explorer shell is installed) and Windows Vista.

resize the partition

hi, I think many computer users are meeting with your problems, but some software can't keep data security, but now, it has released a more professional software---partition assistant software. I think it will solve your all problems.
