Windows 10 Redistribute Disk Space with Built-in Tool

You can rely on Windows built-in tool to redistribute disk space when system partition runs out of disk space:

1. You can open Windows 10 Disk Management to redistribute disk space. With this method, you do not need to delete or move any data. It allows you to add free space from another partition on the same hard disk to the system partition which runs on low disk space.
2. You can also run Diskpart command on Windows 10 to resize disk space without deleting any data. Diskpart command is another built-in tool in Windows 10, with which you can resize hard drive.

Problem you may meet with Windows 10 built-in tool

1. The Windows Disk Management is grayed out when you attempt to extend the volume size. You run into this situation usually because that the unallocated space is not contiguous to the system partition you want to extend.
2. Diskpart command prompt the selected drive cannot be extended. This problem usually occurs since Diskpart does not support to extend system partition or FAT32 partition.

2. You can delete the partition on Windows 10 after opening Disk Management and then reallocate disk space.
