After using a computer for a long time, more and more data are saved on disk partitions, which may cause partition short of space. Well, how to extend partition? With MiniTool Partition Wizard, users can extend partition by taking space from another partition or from an unallocated space, which is very convenient.

  1. Extend a partition to non-contiguous unallocated or free space.
  2. There is no unallocated or free space on the disk.
