But if you want to do some advanced operations such as resize, move, merge, copy, convert, defrag, wipe, hide partition, etc. you need third party partition software. In this article I’ll introduce the best free partition manager for Windows 10.
Windows 10 free partition manager
Partition management software is very useful for all Windows 10 users, because it can solve many disk partition related problems such as:
- Some people forget to edit and create more volumes when installing Windows 10, so there is only one C drive besides two small system reserved partitions. It is a bad idea to keep single C drive and put everything into it, you’d better create more volumes for applications and data. With partition manager software, you can easily shrink C drive to create new volumes without reinstalling.
- After running Windows 10 for a period of time, C drive is very likely running out of space. In that case, partition manager software helps you get free space from other volumes and increase C drive space easily and without losing data.
- In some special situations, you need to convert MBR disk to GPT, convert Logical partition from/to Primary, or convert NTFS to FAT32 (especially for removable storage). Partition manager software can complete these tasks easily, too.
Luckily for personal computer users, there are free partition managers for Windows 10: Windows built-in utility and 3rd-party software.
