When users find the left space in a hard disk partition is not enough, they must want to change the partition size. Users are eager to get a satisfying solution immediately especially when this occurs in system partition (since low disk space in system partition could affect computer responding and running speed). For example, there’s a case in which Windows 8 partition resize is needed.
The professionals originally give 30GB space to C drive in my laptop, but it appears recently that only little free space is left unused in drive C now. By the way, I was running a Windows 8 on my laptop, so I’m wondering if there’s a convenient and safe way to resize partition in Windows 8. I heard that reinstalling operating system is a common way to change partition size, but do I have other choices? I really don’t want to lose other important data in my laptop. Meanwhile, transferring all the data out before reinstalling to other disk is a time-consuming and, I think, a stupid job. I have tried many partition management tools to solve the problem, but unfortunately, I failed and many of them even don’t support Windows 8. Any advice?
