Why Do You Need to Resize C Drive?

Along with more and more programs being installed on your computer, the available space of C drive becomes less and less. Thus, more free space will be needed on C drive in order to meet all your needs to save more data and install more programs on your computer. When the free space on C drive is less than a certain digital, Windows will pop up low disk space warning on C drive. If you cannot free more space on C drive when receiving low disk space warning, some problems (such as system crash, slow down of PC, etc) may occur on your computer. In this situation, you may want to look for a method, with which you can expand the size of C drive.

Why Don't You Need to Reinstall System?

When the free space on C drive is not enough, many users will reinstall Operating System. It is true that reinstalling system can free much space on C drive but you may lose important data stored on the partition. When files got lost due to system reinstalling, it is difficult to get them back. Therefore, it is not a good choice to free space on C drive by reinstall Operating System.

Resize C Drive on Windows Server & Other Windows OS

If you just want to increase the size of C drive, you only need to employ a third-party partition manager.

Unallocated Volume Is Required to Resize C Drive

When you want to resize C drive on Windows, an unallocated volume is required. If there is no unallocated volume on your computer, you can run IM-Magic Partition Resizer to squeeze free space from another partition on the same disk which has enough free space by shrinking. The free space squeezed from another partition will be shown as an unallocated volume. If the unallocated volume is not close to C drive, you still need to move it close to C drive so that you can add the free space to C drive.
