Is There Free Disk Space on Western Digital Hard Disk?

When the Western digital hard drive is installed on a Windows PC, it may be divided into several sections. We call these sections disk partitions, such as C, D, E, F, etc. Usually, C partition is often marked as system partition, which is used to store system programs and data, while the other partitions are used to store other kinds of data. When you want to extend a partition, you should ensure that there is free space on other partitions. If there is no free disk space on the whole Western Digital hard disk drive, it may be unable to resize any partition.

Resize Western Digital Hard Disk on Windows Server

Resizing a hard disk means that you want to either extend a partition or shrink a partition. We seldom want to shrink a partition unless we want to increase the size of another partition. The reason why you need to shrink a partition is to squeeze some free disk space so that you can add the space to another partition. IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server enables you to shrink a partition and extend a partition easily. IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server is specially designed for all Windows Server users.

Is There an Unallocated Volume Close to the Partition You Want to Extend?

We have mentioned that unallocated volume is required in order to extend a partition. However, even if there is an unallocated volume on your computer, you cannot extend a partition if the unallocated volume is not right close to the partition you want to extend. Therefore, IM-Magic Partition Resizer also allows you to move disk partition. Thus, you may move the unallocated volume close to the partition you want to extend easily.

Is IM-Magic Partition Resizer Totally Safe?

Extending, shrinking or moving disk partition with help of IM-Magic Partition Resizer won’t hurt data store on the Western Digital hard disk, so it is 100% safe partition software for your choice. Since the software doesn’t modify or delete any data from hard disk during the resizing, you don’t need to waste time backup disk data before resizing. Besides, IM-Magic Partition Resizer can resize hard disk without reinstalling system or rebooting your computer. Therefore, IM-Magic Partition Resizer is not only a safe partition software, it is also an efficient partition tool for you.
