Locally, Windows7 can adjust the partition itself


There are users who ask how much capacity the Windows 7 partition needs and how to adjust the system partition after installation. Indeed, after Vista, the system partition requires more space than the previous system; for those who are new to Windows7, they still need to explore. And some people are not familiar with the Windows 7 partitioning program, and even the entire hard disk is a partition. This article uses an example to explain the use of Windows7's own software to complete the partition to reduce the creation and expansion work.

Step1 Enter the system management interface. In the Start menu, find “Computer”→ Right click on “Computer" to select “Manage ”→ to enter the storage & disk; & rdquo;

Step2 compresses existing partitions. Find the hard disk you need to adjust, you can see the graphical partition diagram. Right click &rarr on the partition that needs to be reduced; select “compressed volume”→ software will automatically calculate the size that can be compressed. If the compressible value is small, it is best to first defragment → enter a compressed value, click “ Compressed & rdquo;. After the operation is completed, “Unallocated space” will appear at the back of the original partition.

Step3 Create a new partition. Right-click on "Unallocated space" and select "New Simple Volume" → Follow the wizard to enter the volume size (partition capacity), drive number, partition format and other parameters and click “Complete”. Friendly tips, it is recommended to check the quick format & rdquo; can speed up the formatting.

Step4 Adjust the partition size. The disk management that comes with Windows 7 can also perform partition size adjustment. As with the partition reduction, perform the “Compression” operation, then right click on the next volume and select “Extended Volume”. However, this extension is a bit weak and can only extend partitions before unallocated space.

Step5 How to create an extended partition directly. In the disk management of Windows 7, it is no longer possible to directly create an extended partition. If you want to create an extended partition separately, you must use the diskpart command. In fact, I don't think it is necessary to create an extended partition specifically in Windows 7. When the number of created partitions is greater than 3, the partition is automatically converted to an extended + logical partition as shown in the figure.
