How to Produce Unallocated Space?

If there is existing unallocated space on the hard disk, you just need to move it close to C drive so that you can extend C drive. If there is no existing unallocated space, you can produce some by deleting or shrinking a partition.

When you delete an existing partition, the partition will be lost and it will be shown as unallocated space on Disk Management. However, all data on the partition will get lost when you delete it. Therefore, you can shrink a partition to squeeze some unallocated space without losing any data.

Usually, you can open Disk Management or rely on IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server to shrink a partition. After shrinking the partition, you still need to move the unallocated space close to C drive. Only partition software like IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server has the function of moving partition.
