How to Make Unallocated Space?

If you have ever run into low disk space problem, you may know that unallocated space is always needed in order to extend a partition. Then, how can you make unallocated space? Usually, free space often refers to the volume that is not formatted and not be occupied by any data. Therefore, you can squeeze some unallocated space from the partitions that have free space. On Windows Server 2012, you can make unallocated space with the following methods:

1. Make unallocated space under Disk Management

Right click "My Computer" => select "Manage" =>> select "Disk Management" => right click a partition that has lots of free space and select "Shrink Volume".

By following the steps above, you can make some unallocated space by shrinking the partition.

2. Partition magic to make unallocated space

Professional partition magic is able to help shrink partition so as to generate some unallocated space. The advantage of professional partition magic is that it can move partition. After creating unallocated space, you can rely on the partition magic to move the unallocated space close to C drive or any other partition you want to extend.

Add Unallocated Space to Windows 2012 C Drive without Losing Data

After creating unallocated space, you can add the space to C drive to fix the low disk space. If the unallocated space is right behind C drive, you can open Disk Management to add the unallocated space to C drive. You need to delete the partition between C drive and unallocated space if the unallocated space is not behind C drive. However, you will lose data after deleting partition. In this situation, professional partition magic is helpful with the partition resizing without deleting any partition. Thus, you will not lose any data.

Partition Magic Is Helpful in Following Cases

1. "My PC with Windows 2012 only has about 30GB space for C drive and used about 20GB space for operating system. After installing some programs, now C drive is nearly full. There is another two partitions D drive and E drive on my PC, and only E drive still has some free space. I tried to increase the size of C drive under Disk Management, but the Extend Volume option is grayed out. How can I extend the C drive space on Windows Server?"

2. "There is no available space on C drive on my Windows SBS 2012, but the C drive used space is getting full day by day even I don't save any data to this partition. I need to remove cookies caches every day to free up space on C drive, but C drive free space is less and less. How can I increase the size of C drive without formatting the hard disk?"
