How to Move/Resize Partition Without Losing Data

Many computer users may have met these situations: the partition is small while the data is too large, or the partition is large enough while there are a few data. What could users do at this moment to solve the problems?

Generally speaking, disk partition and partition size are set when the disk is allocated. However, due to the unreasonable allocation or different requirements during the operating, users find it is necessary to change the size of some partitions so as to satisfy the specified needs. With the help of MiniTool Partition Manager, users can use “Move/Resize Partition” to shrink a large partition easily without damaging data. Here is a demonstration of how to realize it.

Next, there is a blue partition handle in the middle of the interface. The length of the handle represents partition size while the blank represents unallocated space. Just lengthen the handle if users want to extend the partition (if there exists unallocated space), or shorten the handle to shrink the partition. To move the partition, users just need to drag the whole partition handle towards the unallocated space (if the unallocated space exists on both sides, choose one side). Then, click “OK” to go back to the main interface.

Note: on the top of this interface, users can see the option “Using Enhanced Data Protecting Mode”. Please keep it checked to protect the data.
