When system C: ổ đĩa hết dung lượng, some people try to shrink D and expand C drive in Disk Management, but after shrinking D, Unallocated space can't be moved and added to C drive. This article introduces how to solve this problem easily with phần mềm phân vùng miễn phí.

Disk Management cannot move non-adjacent Unallocated space

The size of a physical hard disk is fixed, so before mở rộng một phân vùng, you have to delete or shrink another one to get Unallocated space. By shrinking partition, part of free unused space will be changed to Unallocated, and you won't lose files in it, so it is better choice.

The problem is, Shrink Volume function can only generate Unallocated space on the ngay side, Extend Volume function can only merge Unallocated space to the left contiguous partition.

That means, Unallocated space shrunk from a partition (such as D:) can only be combined back to D, it cannot be added to the nonadjacent C drive or the right contiguous E drive.

Nếu bạn là mở rộng ổ C, you should move nonadjacent Unallocated space to be contiguous. Disk Management cannot make Unallocated space on the left while shrinking partition, it cannot di chuyển không gian chưa phân bổ or any partition. To accomplish this task, XNUMXrd-party software is required.
