To use the disk space more efficiently, you’d better create several partitions for different purpose. The typical strategy is C drive for Operating System, D for applications and others for data. Besides the working life, lack of free space is another main issue on a hard disk drive, especially for system C drive. Most of the computer users encountered the problem that C drive is running out of space. You need a tool to optimize disk space and do other basic and advanced disk partition management operations.
