How to enlarge free space on the system disk with Windows 10

The volume of free space on the system disk is gradually decreasing. As the available volume is filled, the speed and stability of the system falls. This leads to departures, errors, braking and even unplanned reboots. You can fight this and you need, but not all users know what to do. Next, consider how to enlarge the free space on the disk from Windows 10 on examples with screenshots and detailed instructions.

Almost always the operating system is installed on a C disk, and from this we will be repelled in further examples.

Signs of the need to clean the disk with the operating system

The following factors speak about the need to exemplate space on the system disk:

  • The computer turns on the computer for a long time.
  • A message appears about a lack of free space. The volume of occupied memory under the disk C is displayed in a red stripe.
  • Actions began to occupy more time, the speed deteriorated greatly.
  • There is not enough space to install programs or games.
  • There is not enough space to update Ourser.
  • There is not enough space to save working files.
  • There is not enough space to download files from the Internet or transfer data from the flash drive.
  • The appearance of failures in the work, error messages (with an indication of the shortage of memory), in some cases - a periodic reboot of the system and even the "death screen".

It is necessary to make the release of free space, even if only the first "symptoms" appeared. Of course, many of the listed problems may be a consequence of faults of component PCs, removal by the user of important system files, the activity of malicious software. Failures in work can talk about the need to clean the computer from dust, replace the thermal paste.

The Microsoft developers do not give an accurate answer to the question of how much space should be left unoccupied to maintain the speed and stability of the system. About the approach of the critical situation can say except that the red strip under the disk in the "Computer" window (less than 10%). When using HDD unoccupied, you need to leave 15-20% available on the volume disk. To fulfill defragmentation, you need at least 15% of the free space.

One thing can certainly say: the smaller the different garbage will be on the system disk, the better.

What grows memory

There are two main reasons for reducing the available space on the system disk:

  • user files;
  • Various system data.

Almost all applications used create temporary and working files. Take, for example, browsers in which a variety of gigabytes of memory can accumulate in just a month.

In these directions, we will work.

Automatic cleaning of the place

It is carried out by regular means of Windows or special utilities. The advantage of the proposed ways in their simplicity, the minimum time spent and the ability to get a good result.

We free the space on the system disk using third-party utilities

Selecting software to optimize the system and cleaning the disks is very large. As an example, you can offer:

  • CCleaner;
  • Ashampoo winoptimizer;
  • Auslogics boostspeed;
  • ADVANCED SYSTEMCARE FREE;
  • GLARY UTILITIES.

The user interface of the applications looks sufficiently unlikely, so the instruction below is suitable for other utilities.

What is the cleaning of temporary files with CCleaner looks like.

  1. Download by from the official site. Developers offer free and PRO versions with advanced functionality.
  2. We establish the program following the instructions. There is Russian. The installer will offer to install avast antivirus, but this proposal can be rejected.
  3. After the installation process is completed, close all programs except CCleaner.
  4. In the Application menu, go to the "Standard Cleaning" section. It is indicated here that it is going to clear the utility, and a recommended set is proposed. By the way, in this section there are 2 lists - "Windows" and "Applications", and both will be involved if you do not remove the corresponding checkboxes.
  5. Before starting cleaning, you can analyze. The utility will show how much space will be released upon completion of the procedure.
  6. Run the process by pressing the "Clear" button and wait for the completion.

Note . The cleaner list proposed in the utility, among other things, will delete cookies (authentication data on sites), visits history and downloads, as well as the contents of the "Basket".

The application menu contains many other useful tooling tool disk. For example, delete programs, search for a double, full deletion of files and much more. In analogues, such options are also found.

Embedded Windows 10 disk cleaning agent

An alternative to third-party utilities, which can be useful in cases where to establish an additional software is not possible or desire.

Instructions for using the built-in system disk cleaning in Windows 10.

  1. In the "My Computer" directory, click the right key on the disk icon by selecting the "Properties" item.
  2. In the window that opens, click the "Disk Cleaning" button.
  3. The utility is open. Now you need to specify what actions need to be performed. After that, press the "OK" button, and wait for the completion of the procedure.
  4. If you click the "Clear System Files" button, the advanced list of actions will appear, where you can guess, system files are present. Next, you need to agree to clean the cleaning and wait for the completion.

It is recommended to use the default cleaner list, but advanced users can specify additional actions. So, you can add cleaning of logs and memory dumps, unused drivers, delivery optimization files. To read the descriptions of the proposed items, it is enough to click on them left mouse button.

Note 1. . You can call the utility by speaking command Cleanmgr. In the command prompt, open on behalf of the admin.

Note 2. . You can also leave only the last control point of recovery. To do this, in the advanced menu of the built-in tool for cleaning the Windows 10 system disk, select the "Advanced" tab, and then the corresponding section.

Manual disc cleaning with Windows 10

Starting with removing unnecessary software, which, during the time of use, there may be a lot of computer. To do this, go to the "Programs and Components" menu. Way: Control Panel \ Programs \ Programs and Components .

If an operating system has not been reinstated on the computer for a long time, that is, it makes sense to check the drive for a double (copies of files). This will help us with the already mentioned CCleaner utility, as well as its counterparts, for example: Auslogics Duplicate File Finder, computer accelerator, ALLDUP and TOTAL COMMANDER. This is a universal solution, but there are narrow-controlled utilities capable of, for example, to find similar pictures with different names and quality or identical musical compositions. Their effectiveness is higher, but the scope of application is strongly limited.

Cleaning system directories manually

It is useful for those who need to carry out deep cleaning of memory. It is impossible to achieve a similar result to the above methods.

Almost all system files and folders are hidden from the user, so first customize their display. To do this, open the "Explorer" or just go to the "computer". In the window on top there is a menu where you select the "View" tab, go to "Parameters" ("Change folder and search options"). In the window that opens, called "folder parameters", go to the "View" tab, where you remove the box next to the "Hide secure system files" item, and at the bottom of the list, select "Show hidden files, folders and discs". Further actions are recommended to perform only advanced users.

In which system folders can be destroyed, and how to do it.

  1. Full way C: \ Users \(Username) \ APPDATA. or % APPDATA% . Here the application data is stored (parameters, user data and logs). Delete accessible folders and files are not recommended - this will lead to the loss of all user information in applications. There is only one exception described in the next paragraph.
  2. Full way: C: \ Users \ (Username) \ APPDATA \ LOCAL \ TEMP or % Temp% . Here are temporary software files. You can delete everything except the files used.
  3. Full way: C: \ Windows \ SoftWaredistrationTribution \ DOWNLOAD or % WINDIR% \ SoftWaredistribution \ Download . Automatic updates are stored here. The folder can be cleaned manually or automated.
  4. Full way: C: \ Windows \ Temp or% WINDIR% \ TEMP . Here are stored OS temporary files. The folder can be cleaned manually or automated.

Council. It is recommended to first transfer the contents of the system folders to another place (for example, on the desktop). After that, you need to restart the system, and if there are no problems with the launch, you can delete filed files. It is advisable to perform operations alternately.

Separately should tell about two folders. First - WINSXS. Full way - C: \ Windows \ Winsxs . It may be displayed that the folder takes several GB of memory, but in fact the content size is significantly less. Here are the backup copies of the OS files before the update in case of a rollback of changes. Preferred cleaning option - through the built-in Windows 10 disk cleaning tool, "Clear system files" section, "Clearing Windows Updates". What other manipulations can be done with this folder, shown in the video below:

Second folder - Windows Installer . Full way to folder - C: \ Windows \ Installer . It contains information about all installed software (and not only) on PC. Delete this folder is not recommended, files in it are also. This can lead to problems with the work of programs, including updating, restore and delete. About what can be done with this folder is told in the video below:

Additional ways to enlarge free disk space

There are several more Lifehakov, using which, you can significantly free the place on the system disk. To make changes to the power, it will take a restart system upon completion of the setup.

Customize the removal bypass "Basket" . By default, deleted files are sent to "Basket". In other words, they still take place. Capacity "Basket" can be adjusted, but in our case it will be better to immediately delete files.

To set the size, you need to right-click on the "Basket" icon by selecting the "Properties" item. Instead of specifying the size, select the "destroy files immediately after removal, without placing them in the basket." Click button "Apply" and "OK". If necessary, you can leave a place for "basket" on D. D.

Adjust the amount of memory for control points of recovery . The user has the ability to highlight or delete a place to store control points of recovery. In order to save disk space, it is possible to reduce the available amount of memory to a minimum level in 1-2%, and those who do not use this option can disable it.

To do this, you need to press the right mouse button on the "Computer" icon, select the "System Protection" menu, select the disk and click the "Set" button in the tab. Driving a runner, select the available volume. By the way, there is a button to delete all recovery points.

Configure Podchock file . This is a virtual memory where the system stores various data for quick access. And there are two problems: occupied memory and floating size (in default settings). If there are no malfunctions in the computer, you can transfer the paging file to another disk. It is not recommended to completely refuse to parse, and the large file size will not lead to performance improvement. In most cases, 2 GB is enough, but, of course, it all depends on the operating conditions and components.

To configure the paging file, you need to click the right mouse button on the computer icon. In the menu, select "Advanced System Parameters", then in the "Speed" section, click "Parameters", go to the "Advanced" tab and click "Change". For disk C, select the "without paging file" and click "Set". For disk D, we indicate the minimum and maximum size of 2048 MB, then click "Set".

We carry the "My Documents" folder and the "desktop" from the system disk . In this case, we transfer the location of the appropriate directories to another disk. Normal copying in such cases will not work. It is convenient to do it through the "Explorer". To do this, go to the folder C: \ Users And choose our username.

Instructions for changing the location in all cases identical. Press the right mouse button on the icon of each folder, select the "Properties" item, and then the Location tab. Click "Move ..." and choose another storage space.

Cleaning Outlook History . Application files are stored in C: \ Users \ (username) \ Documents \ Outlook files . With intensive daily use, the contents of the folder can quickly grow up to several gigabytes. Here you can find archives, backups for export and application files. Unnecessary elements should be removed. About what can be done in this folder is told here.

Also, Outlook working files can be transferred to another directory, thereby freeing the system disk.

Application files can be found in the AppData directory: C: \ Users \ (username) \ APPDATA \ LOCAL \ Microsoft \ Outlook . This is a mail synchronization file. It can be removed after cleaning unnecessary messages, but after the next start of the application, it will create it again.

Turn off hibernation . Most often this option is used on laptops. We are talking about the hiberfil.sys file. Its size is usually more than 50% of RAM. If you disable hibernation, then this file will disappear. True, the speed start function will also turn off. Here you need to choose what is more important.

The easiest way to disable hibernation is to register on the command prompt (open on behalf of the administrator) the following: PowerCfg -h off. . To return the function you need to register: PowerCfg -h ON. .

An alternative solution is to reduce the size of the hibernation file with built-in means. To do this, we need to register the team PowerCFG / H / TYPE REDUCED.

Archiving data . It would seem, after cleaning the disk cleaning with a standard Windows tool, the compression option for saving space looks the most obvious. On the other hand, archiving system files is not always a good idea.

The inclusion of the option will not prevent the display of directory and files, and will also really increase the amount of free disk space. However, this will lead to an excessive consumption of "iron" resources, which for weak PCs can be even worse than the lack of space. The consequence will be failed, system departures, a significant drop in speed. On the other hand, archiving can always be disabled.

Let's summarize

The volume of freed disk space depends on the methods used. This can only be a few hundred megabytes or dozens of gigabytes. If the result achieved is not enough, then it may be worth thinking about reinstalling Windows 10 with an increase in the size of the system disk or on the purchase of a new drive.

In our case, on a computer from a month started a month ago, Windows 10 managed to free 6.7 GB, of which 1.13 GB occupied the contents of the "Download" folder.

Place before cleaning the disk:

Result:

I will start with the fact that for a long time I used the old laptop with the Windows XP installed operating system, there were no special problems, except one and most important! It is a laptop itself, which was weak and could not cope with most tasks you need. It was decided to purchase a PC which would have answered all modern requirements. Highlighting 50 GB under the operating system and installing the "seven", I thought that this place would be enough. But it was only for the time being.

Soon, I noticed that a free space on the C drive decreases, and it categorically stopped grabbing ... After a while I found a way to extend the C disc from the D disc on Windows 7, without losing any data and without the use of third-party programs. The fact is that the system itself provides users with such an opportunity! We want to tell you about her!

Increase the disk C due to disk D without programs

In this article you will learn how to increase the size of the system disk without reinstalling the system. But you may encounter one problem that we will help to avoid!

If your Windows 7 system, then you need to go to the settings! Start -> My computer (right mouse button ) -> Control

Zoom C. C.

After that, a new window called "Computer Management" will open. In the left column, you need to select "Disk Management". After that, all the disks of your PC will be displayed.

In order to increase the C drive, you need to find a free space, and if you feel more accurately to re-jeep off the free space from the next disk. To do this, right-click (PCM) click on the D disc, and squeeze the volume to the volume you want to increase. Suppose 1000 MB.

How to increase disk c

And now the problem itself!

A not marked area of ​​1000 MB will appear, and logically, we need to click the PCM to the C disk and click "Expand Tom", but this option will not be available! Many are trying to find answers on the forums or somewhere else, but in most cases, do not cope with the problem independently!

How to expand the disc

  • Suppose you have two disks (C, D), determine which volume it takes information on Disk D (for example, the total volume is 800 GB, and is employed by 300 GB)
  • You will need to remove Tom D, without data loss. How to do it? It is necessary to expand it by more than 300 GB, which appeared not the marked area to turn into that G. Now you will have three disks (C, D, G)
  • Copy all the information from the D disc to the G.
  • We delete Tom D, after that it will not be placed area in 500 GB
  • Expand the C drive to the required volume, admit to 50 GB
  • The remaining 450 GB - turn again into the disk D.

We all have our sites, our next article will be useful, in which we told how to write Yandex technical support, as well as how to fill out the form.

And now let's in order!

one. Expanding Tom D, in my case 360 ​​GB, an unmarked area appears on 351 GB. Please note that the expansion takes 10-15 minutes.

Expand C.

2. Press the right mouse button (PCM), and select "Create a simple Tom". Now log in to "My Computer" and you will see 3 Disc: C, D, G. To avoid loss of all files, copy them to the G.

3. Remove Tom D.

How without losing data to expand the C disk from the D disc on Windows 7 without using programs

four. Now we can "expand Tom" C to the desired value. As you see C, increased to 127.93 GB.

How without losing data to expand the C disk from the D disc on Windows 7 without using programs

five. From the non-placed area, we create Tom D. You can leave everything as it is, or return the PC in the former look, that is, leave 2 disks: C and D. To do this, we transfer back all the information from G to D. After that, Tom G, we delete, And Tom d expand.

The presented process will take time, but this 100% will protect you from data loss, and most importantly will not need to study a bunch of third-party applications that can damage your hard drive.

Increase disk size C due to free disk space D

The question with a free place on the system disk C is very acute in many users. It happens that in the process of operation of the operating system, even if you do not download to the disk C, nothing free space disappears.

This is due to the fact that periodically your antivirus, as well as the operating system itself, is updated. Also, free space eat cache browsers.

Of course, you can constantly delete updates, brushing caches from browsers, transfer the paging file from the system disk, turn off the hibernation in order for the system disk the free space appears.

But all this is only a temporary solution to the problem. It can only be solved by the increase in the size of the disc C. And this can be done by free space on Disk D. How to bite off a piece from it.

In this article, you will learn how to increase the size of the disk from the Disk D in Windows 7 without losing data, as well as without installing additional programs.

The process of throwing space from disk D to disk C

To begin with opens the computer management. To do this, click right-click on the "Computer" icon on the desktop or in the "Start" menu and in the menu that opens, select "Control".

How to increase the size of the disk from the disk D in Windows 7

We go into computer management

In the opened window on the left below, select "Disk Management".

How to increase the size of the disk from the disk D in Windows 7

Disc management

Here you will see all your local disks. The free space of the C disk can be added due to the "biting" from the adjacent disk on the right. In most cases, this is Disk D.

To do this without losing data, you need as much information from the D disk to transfer to other local discs if they are. If there are no, it does not matter. We will do what is.

If possible, delete from the disk D all that you do not particularly need or what can be easily restored. It makes sense to do on the disk D as much free space.

As soon as you did it click on it with the right mouse button and choose the "squeeze that".

How to make a C drive more?

Squeeze the disk D to the value we want to attach to the disk C

A window will appear in which you need to specify which space you need to "bite off" from the Disk D. But it is worth considering that this is not the volume that will be connected to the disk C. This is the volume of your disk D after "biting" from it free space.

Calculation of this. For example, the volume of the disk D is 150 GB. You want them to transfer them a C 50 GB disk. So it is necessary to compress it 100 GB. This will be in the future your Disc D, and the fact that will remain (50 GB) will be attached to the C drive.

Indicate the volume of the compressible space in megabytes. (100 GB should be listed as 100,000 MB) and click the "Compress" button.

In all the windows that appeared, we click "Next" without changing any parameters. According to the total, the size of the local disk C will be increased due to the free space of a neighboring disk D.

In the last, you will only be able to change the letter to your new disk on the letter D. For this, you click on it right mouse button and choose "Change the letter of the disc or path to the disk .." In the window that opens, you choose the letter from the list and in all appearing Window clamp "Yes" ("OK").

Probably, each user came across such a paradox that no matter how much the volume of the disk C, the day comes when the places on it starts catastrophically miss.

And then the question arises, and is it possible to increase the volume of the disk with all the saved data to increase and how to do it?

Adding volume volume without memory loss

How to increase the volume of the disk with - an up-to-date problem for many users

Answer this question and this article is designed. But first we will analyze, for what time the reason the place on the disk with begins to end.

Why the disk space with starts miss

The fact is that the Windows operating system has such an unpleasant feature as an increase in its logical volume occupied after a certain time.

All files such as temporary and systemic are subject to growth. And this happens with all versions of OP - Windows 7, 8 and 10.

Of course, at first we are trying to free the place by removing unnecessary files or cleaning the disk, but still the moment occurs when there is nothing to delete, and the volume continues to be disastrously miss.

Adding volume volume without memory loss

We find and run the utility "Disks" utility

This program provides us with the opportunity to manage all devices designed to save data - logic discs, flash memory, CD.

With this utility, we can easily transfer the amount of free space from the local disk D to the C drive, that is, to increase the size of the system disk on which we have the Windows 7 operating system (8 or 10).

Before moving the transfer of free space, we decide how much we have free space on Disk D, how much we need for our local disk with and how much we can transfer.

Now, in order to transfer this freed place on the system volume, press it with the right mouse button on it and select the "Expand Tom" function in the menu that opens.

Adding volume volume without memory loss

However, she has one small drawback - the absence of a Russian-speaking interface. What, however, is compensated for its simplicity and accessibility. In addition, work in MINITOOL PARTITION WIZARD FREE

Very similar to work with the above-mentioned program Aomei Partition Assistant.

After installing PARTITION WIZARD, we see the same simple interface that makes the use of a program easy even without Russian-speaking settings.

Increase the volume of the disk on the tablet

A simple interface makes it easy to work in the program even with a missing Russian interface.

The change in the size of the disks also occurs by analogy with the program described above. In the same way, using the control points, we easily change the size of the volume, due to the available free space.

Adding volume volume without memory loss

Adjusting the added space on disks occurs in the same simple way

After we do all operations to increase the volume of the system disk C due to volume D, the result will be immediately accessible to us in the conductor.

I hope these simple ways will help easily and quickly solve the problem of increasing the size of one disk at the expense of the other without losing data.

disk space C

For the correct operation of Windows 10, the free space on the C drive plays an important role. There must be a minimum of a few GB of free space on the hard disk. For Windows 8, the disk plays the same important role.

Each Windows OS user once sets the question of where the location disk in Windows 10 disappears. Disappeared from the C disk on Windows 10 may have any user, especially if it does not clean the system from unnecessary trash. Let's look through where the location disappears on the C. disk.

On the disk C disappears the place what to do:

  • OS Windows (many functions of the operating system require free memory on the hard disk, one more, others less)
  • unnecessary files and folders that were not transferred to another disk
  • Uploaded "Desktop"
  • Unwanted files from the "Download" folder
  • Unclean "Basket"

Now you know where it disappears on the C drive in Windows 10 and what you need to clean if the free space is disappeared on C.

If your itself decreases on a C drive in Windows 10, then there may be several reasons for this:

  1. Installed programs. By default, the program is installed on the C disk, you can delete unnecessary programs and further install them on another disc.
  2. For a long time, the basket was not cleared. Remote files occupy a disk space until you clear the basket
  3. Folder "Downloads" and "Desktop". These folders are on the C disk, you do not need to store in them a large number of files
  4. Temporary files. Periodically clean the folder C: / Windows / TEMP
  5. Unused files. Clean the disc

On disk C, there should always be a free space for comfortable work without annoying hangs. Many are faced with such a situation when there is little space on the disk in Windows.

Little space on a C drive what to do

Little disk space C what to do:

  1. Clear Disk from the garbage - you need to delete temporary files in a timely manner and clean the basket, because useless files can accumulate a decent amount with time
  2. Remove unnecessary programs
  3. Move the paging file to another disc
  4. Remove system recovery points (not recommended, only for emergency situations)
  5. Increase the disc C due to other disks

If you write "not enough space on Windows disk", it means that you have no free space on the disk C. What to do in such a situation:

  1. Clear the basket - files after removal disappear from the folders, but still stored on the disk
  2. Delete temporary files - they can significantly clog the system over time.
  3. Increase the C disc from other disks - Aomei Partition Assistant or the other similar to you will help you What if not enough space on the disk C
  4. Move the download folder and the paging file to another drive

These methods will help if the error "is not enough on disk" appears.

Let's look at what to do if there is not enough space on a C disk in Windows 10, there is little space on the disk or there is no place on the disk of S.

There is not enough space on a C drive or no space on a C drive, what to do? First of all, it is worth removing temporary files.

If a lot of space is occupied on a disk C or ends on a C drive, delete files from these folders:

  • C: \ Windows \ Temp
  • C: \ Documents and Settings \ Account \ Local Settings \ temp
  • C: \ Documents and Settings \ Account \ Local Settings \ Temporary Internet Files

Now you know the answer to the question "What to do if there is not enough space on the disk".

Many are wondering how to clear the disk in Windows? Cleaning the disk space is possible in such ways:

  1. Delete installed programs
  2. Deleting temporary files from the C: / Windows / TEMP folder

And then the question arises, and is it possible to increase the volume of the disk with all the saved data to increase and how to do it?

Adding volume volume without memory loss

How to increase the volume of the disk with - an up-to-date problem for many users

Answer this question and this article is designed. But first we will analyze, for what time the reason the place on the disk with begins to end.

Why the disk space with starts miss

The fact is that the Windows operating system has such an unpleasant feature as an increase in its logical volume occupied after a certain time.

All files such as temporary and systemic are subject to growth. And this happens with all versions of OP - Windows 7, 8 and 10.

Of course, at first we are trying to free the place by removing unnecessary files or cleaning the disk, but still the moment occurs when there is nothing to delete, and the volume continues to be disastrously miss.

Adding volume volume without memory loss

Fully filled disk with - unpleasant, but corrected situation

This situation is very negatively affected by our computer.

Increase the volume of the disk on the tablet

There is little space on the disk - it is necessary to take action urgently

The recovery of the disk also affects the security of the system, the risk increases, which at the most inopportune moment during the hard work at the computer we need the program to fail.

3 ways to increase the volume of the disk with

Method 1. Release the disk space with the system utility

In Windows 7, 8 or 10 operating systems, there is a standard disk management utility that allows you to view and change the hard disk partitions on our discretion.

It is simple to find it, following the instructions below:

  • With the right mouse button on the computer icon and in the dialog that opens, select Management.
Increase the volume of the disk on the tablet

On the "Computer" icon, press the right mouse button and choose "Management"

In the menu that appears, we find the "Disk Management" utility and click on it with the mouse button.

Adding volume volume without memory loss

We find and run the "Disk Management" utility

This program provides us with the opportunity to manage all devices designed to save data - logic discs, flash memory, CD.

With this utility, we can easily transfer the amount of free space from the local disk D to the C drive, that is, to increase the size of the system disk on which we have the Windows 7 operating system (8 or 10).

Before moving the transfer of free space, we decide how much we have free space on Disk D, how much we need for our local disk with and how much we can transfer.

Now, in order to transfer this freed place on the system volume, press it with the right mouse button on it and select the "Expand Tom" function in the menu that opens.

Adding volume volume without memory loss

To transfer the liberated space to our disc, select the "Expand Tom" item

Now click the "Compress" command, after the execution of which the system provides us with information about the released free space, which we redirect to the C.

Increase the volume of the disk on the tablet

We have information about the released space that we can now transfer to the system disk with

In the field that opens, indicate the size in the MB of the place that we intend to transfer. After this action, the system will execute the volume survey and will provide you with the result in this form:

Increase the volume of the disk on the tablet

We press "Next" and Voila - we received a disk with (which is our Windows operating system) of a larger amount of free space.

After all the manipulations done, we reboot our computer.

Method 2. Increase the scope of the system disk using the Aomei Partition Assistant program

One of the most universal and well-proven programs for reliable and simple management of our discs is the free Aomei Partition Assistant program.

So, produce actions, according to the instructions:

Right-click on the disk D and select the "Resize section" function;

Increase the volume of the disk on the tablet

Click on the right mouse button on section D and click the "Resize section" option

In the current console, we can easily change the volume of the disk only with the mouse, towing the cursor to the control points, as shown in the photo;

  • Further, it may be necessary to perform, as a rule, two reboots, after which we get the desired result - the increased size of the system C-disk by reducing the disk D without loss of any data.

Method 3. Change the disk size with the Minitool Partition Wizard Free

There is another available and simple program to control the size of our discs. It is called MINITOOL PARTITION WIZARD FREE and you can also download it from the official site of the manufacturer http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.htm. l.

PARTITION WIZARD program - convenient and easy-to-use application

The program, as well as the previous application, is conditionally free and does not require any additional knowledge, except for the skills of a regular PC user.

However, she has one small drawback - the absence of a Russian-speaking interface. What, however, is compensated for its simplicity and accessibility. In addition, work in MINITOOL PARTITION WIZARD FREE

Very similar to work with the above-mentioned program Aomei Partition Assistant.

After installing PARTITION WIZARD, we see the same simple interface that makes the use of a program easy even without Russian-speaking settings.

Increase the volume of the disk on the tablet

A simple interface makes it easy to work in the program even with a missing Russian interface.

The change in the size of the disks also occurs by analogy with the program described above. In the same way, using the control points, we easily change the size of the volume, due to the available free space.

Adding volume volume without memory loss

Adjusting the added space on disks occurs in the same simple way

After we do all operations to increase the volume of the system disk C due to volume D, the result will be immediately accessible to us in the conductor.

I hope these simple ways will help easily and quickly solve the problem of increasing the size of one disk at the expense of the other without losing data.

Изменение размера диска

Question from the user

Hello.

I did not end with my disk on the disk with Windows - and in the tray next to the clock began to pull the mistake "not enough space on the system section of the disk, it could be the cause ...".

The fact is that on the disk "C: \" in fact there is little space - only 30 GB, but on another disk "D: \" - 420 GB (freely about 200 GB). Is it possible to increase the size of the disk "C" due to the "D" disk without loss of data?

PS.

Acer Aspire 5550 laptop, Windows 8 system, 500 GB hard drive (Seagate, if not confused).

Hello.

Most often, change the volume of the disk is when the required system disk size was calculated when installing Windows. (Also when buying a PC - often the disk is not very convenient: either only one section with Windows, or the size of the system partition is very small) .

In general, such an operation to resize the size can be made even without installing additional programs, if you have installed Windows 7, 8, 10 (If XP - use the link to the spec. Software for formatting, breaking hard drives, reference below) .

Now I will show on a specific example, where and how to press 👌.

Increased disk volume "C: \"

(Relevant for Windows 7, 8, 10. Without loss of data and additional programs)

Step 1: Open drive control

👉 Important : To increase the size of the disk "C: \" - you must have a free space on some other section of the disk (part of which we will take).

In modern Windows, there is a built-in service program for formatting and breaking disks. It is called - 👉 Disc management . Of course, the first thing it must be opened.

To do this, press the button combination Win + R. .

Win + R.

Next should appear window "Run" - Enter in the string "Open" Team diskmgmt.msc. and press ENTER (or OK, see Screenshot below) .

diskmgmt.msc - Run drive control

diskmgmt.msc - Run drive control

Then the desired utility must be launched ...

Step 2: Separate part of the free space

Now we need to choose the disk section on which there is a free space, and "take away" it for subsequent joining the disc section "C: \".

👉 I have, for example, there are several sections:

  • "C:" - by 132 GB (see screen below 👇);
  • "H:" - at 751 GB (on which 187 GB is free, and some of this place I will give the section "C:") .

To do this, right-click on the "H:" section and select the option. "Squeeze Tom"  (I note that the data at the same time should not suffer!) .

Say

Next, for a minute, another Windows will think: an analysis of free disk space will be performed to assess the possibility of compression.

Waiting - disk analysis

Waiting - disk analysis

Now you need to specify how much space you want to take away on the disk. In his example, I took a figure of 5000 MB (i.e. in 5 GB).

How much free place to take away in MB

How much free place to take away in MB

After the section is compressed - you should see how you appear Not distributed place On disk (rectangle with black stripe from above, see screen below) . This is the place and can now be attached to another section of the disc.

Нераспределенная область

Not distributed area

Step 3: We attach to the disk "C: \" not distributed place

Click right-click on the disk to which we want to attach the non-distributed disk space (in the current example - connect to the disk "C: \"), and select the option in the menu "Expand Tom" .

👉 Note!

If you have option "Expand Tom" It is not active and lit with gray (it can not be pressed) - read the subject at thenime A couple of proposed decisions

Expand Tom (C C)

Next, you will be proposed for attachment not the placed area on the disk (those 5 GB, which we in the previous step took away from another partition of the disk). Choose them and click Next.

In general, the last step is to agree with the operation by clicking on the button. "Done" .

And that if the tab expand Tom on the disk "C: \" is not active

In some cases, when trying to expand Tom - this option in drive management may not be active (it simply burns with gray and cannot be pressed, the example below).

Expand volume is not active

Expand volume is not active

There are two ways to solve:

  1. The easiest option in this case is to use special. programs to resize HDD sections 👉 from this article (Personally, I will show my example below in Minitool Partition Wizard, I recommend!) .
  2. You can also try to delete unnecessary sections used to restore. (usually all this because of them) . As a rule, this is observed more often on laptops, where there are special sections from the manufacturer. In your example below, I will show how to remove them to function "Expand Tom" Steel active (Important ! In this case, you will turn off the possibility of recovery - i.e. Rollback of the device to factory presets).

*

Option 1: Using alternative software

And so, we assume that the Minitool Partition Wizard utility is installed and running. 👌

1) To begin with, you need to find the partition of the disc that you want to attach (in my example 👇 is a 25 GB section, "E:"). After click on it right mouse and select the option "Delete" (All information on this section will be deleted!).

To confirm the action - in the upper right corner, click on the button "Apply"

Selection and deletion of the section that we want to attach (it is empty)

Selection and deletion of the section that we want to attach (it is empty)

The status of this section should be as "unallocated" (see screen below).

Unallocated

Unallocated

Как увеличить размер диска «C» за счет диска «D», без потери данных

Built in Windows tool to increase the size of the disk.

There are two ways to choose from. The first method - without the use of third-party programs, exclusively by the standard tools of the Windows operating system. The minus of this method is that it can be useful to you only if there are no important data on Disk D and you can clean it.

So, proceed:

Right click on the menu "Start" and select from the list that appears "Disk management" .

Programs to resize disks

The second way. If you have an important data on Disk D, but you need to use part of the free space of this disk to increase the C.

Data recovery lost as a result of changes in the size of the disks
