It's an Annoying Thing If C Partition Runs on Low Disk Space

For most people, it will be a quite annoying thing when C partition is running out of disk space. The reasons why they have such feeling might be:
* It is the first time that they receive low disk space warning on C partition, so they have no clue what to do to deal with such kind of problem.
* One possible way they know that may resolve low disk space problem is to run Windows disk cleanup utility to clean some temporary files, but it can only free a little free disk space
* It might be helpful to delete some files from the partition to free disk space, but most files cannot be deleted or moved from C partition because it may have influence on system and performance of computer.
* Free space on C partition is less and less and Windows pops up low disk space frequently, but there is no good solution.
What mentioned above annoyed many people, but is there a way that can resolve low disk space problem thoroughly?

Expand C Partition by Shrinking E Partition

If you don't want to get low disk space warning on C partition anymore, you need to ensure that C partition has enough free space by increasing size of the partition. You can expand the C partition by shrinking another partition such as E partition. In order to do this, you need to rely on a third-party partition software such as IM-Magic Partition Resizer. Imagining E partition still has a lot of free disk space, you can run IM-Magic Partition Resizer to shrink the E partition to produce an unallocated volume. Then you can move the unallocated volume close to C partition and add the free space to C partition. You can shrink any partition that has enough free disk space to create an unallocated volume so that you can expand C partition.
