I have 500 GB hard disk on Windows 10 laptop. C drive is 350 gb while d is 150 gb. Since windows is installed in C drive i keep all my important files and study videos in d. Unfortunately d is running out of space while C drive has more than 250 gb of free space. Is it possible to shrink C drive and add more space to d?

  • You would have to delete the d partition in order to create a larger partition after shrinking the C partition. – Ramhound Dec 3 at 17:35
  • Another way. Shrink C. There will be a small section in between C and D, make it E. Move data from D to E. Delete D. Extend E. – Biswapriyo Dec 3 at 19:27

There are lots of partition manager tools available which can do this for you. Last week I used the free home edition of Minitool Partition Wizard for a very similar task, worked well for me.

  • And they can be had for free. I've also used MPW (as well as other progs ) for the exact same situation and it's worked perfectly. – squidlydeux Dec 3 at 18:50

If you want to increase D:drive, the easiest way of using MiniTool partition wizard. In general, Move/Resize Partition contains 3 operations – shrink the partition, extend partition, and move the partition. you can refer to here:https://www.partitionwizard.com/help/resize-partition.html

You can shrink the volume (C:), then back up all the data in D:, then delete the D: at last, you can use all the unallocated space to create a new volume.

Hope this can help you!
