    Default Resize Windows 8 Partition

    I am using a 250gb hard drive in my thinkpad laptop. my D drive has 50GB space, and now it is only left 2GB free space.

    How can I resize Windows 8 partition without system re-install?

    I decide to move some free space from E drive (Which has more than 80G free space) to D drive. I don't know why I can't resize windows 8 partition by partition magic, it keeps tell me that it doesn't support Windows 8.

    I don't know what's wrong. The only software for resizing Windows 8 partition is recommended by my firend, I think he won't lie to me.

    Any Solution?

    Default Re: Resize Windows 8 Partition

    Windows 8 includes a built-in functionality in Disk Management to shrink and expand partitions. No more 3rd party utilities needed!

    To get to this utility, open up Control Panel, and type in partition into the search box.. you’ll immediately see the link show up:

    Shrink a Partition

    In the Disk Management screen, just right-click on the partition that you want to shrink, and select “Shrink Volume” from the menu.

    In the Shrink dialog, you will want to enter the amount you want to shrink by, not the new size. For example, if you want to shrink your 50gb partition by roughly 10gb so that it will now be roughly 40gb, enter 10000 into the box:

    For Extend a Partition

    In the Disk Management screen, just right-click on the partition that you want to shrink, and select “Extend Volume” from the menu.
    On this screen, you can specify the amount that you want to increase the partition by. In this case, I’m going to extend it back to the roughly 50GB size that it was before.

    Note that the extend partition feature only works with contiguous space.
