Users That Need Reallocate Space to C Drive for Windows 2012

"There is little free space on C drive on my PC which runs Windows Server 2012, but I cannot delete or move any data to free space. There is another partition which still has much free space, so I doubt if I can move some free space from another partition to C drive. I tried to open Disk Management to shrink the partition that has much free space and squeezed some unallocated space. But I cannot add the unallocated space to C drive because I cannot move the unallocated space close to the C drive. If I want to move the unallocated space close to C drive, I still need to delete the partition (D drive) between them, but I cannot do it. So is there any other way to extend C drive or move the unallocated space close to C drive?"

Methods to Save C Drive from Running on Low Disk Space

Although it is a common problem that C drive runs on low disk space, it causes many troubles. Here are some methods to save C drive from running on low disk space:
1. Do not install programs on C drive
Many people like to install programs on C drive, which often occupy lots of disk space. C drive usually works as system partition, so you may install system related program on this drive. However, you can install other programs to other partitions.
2. Allocating reasonable disk space to C drive
In many situations, C drive doesn’t have a large capacity because people don’t allocate much space to it when dividing the hard disk. If you have lots of data to save, you had better buy a large hard disk and allocate much free space to C drive in order to prevent it from running out of disk space.
