Free Windows 7 Partition Magic Software

Microsoft Windows 10 has been released for such a long time, but many people still use Windows 7. The same with Previous Windows XP, in Windows 7 you’ll encounter the problem that system C: drive running out of space. To solve this problem, the fastest and easiest way is resizing partition. Shrink a data volume to get free space and then add into C drive. This is the reason why many people search Partition Magic for Windows 7 by Google. What a pity, on December 8, 2009, the Symantec website officially stated: “Sorry, we no longer offer Norton Partition Magic.”

Partition Magic

Norton Partition Magic is the most famous software in disk management field, but on May 5, 2004, the last edition of Partition Magic 8.0.5 was released, so it is not compatible with Windows 7. Recently, some people said that they cannot install Partition Magic on Windows 7, so they ask me if it is possible to resize partition on Windows 7 by creating Partition Magic bootable disc, or is there other way to run Partition Magic for Windows 7 64 bit.

Actually, you can build Partition Magic bootable disc and boot on Windows 7, but do NOT use it to resize or change the system partition, because the old Partition Magic cannot handle new boot manager in Windows 7. However, there is free alternative of Partition Magic for Windows 7, which is similar but much more powerful, such as NIUBI Partition Editor Free.

Common hard disk partition problem

1. When you installing Windows 7, you may forgot to create more partitions, so there is only C drive in entire disk. As we know, it is not a good idea to use single C drive and put everything into it. You’d better create separate partition for applications and data files.

2. Another typical issue on Windows 7 is that C drive becomes full and it shows red in “My Computer”. Meanwhile, there is plenty of free space in other volumes such as D.

Windows 7 low disk space

3. Some people want to create new volumes but failed, because there are already 4 Primary partitions in this disk.

These problem can be solved easily by this free partition software.

Windows 7 partition magic feature

In Windows Disk Management snap-in, you can do some basic management such as create, delete and format partitions. In Windows 7, Microsoft added new functions – Shrink Volume and Extend Volume, making it is similar with Partition Magic in some part. However, the functions are limited. In technical forums, some Windows 7 users try to expand C by shrinking D but failed because of Extend Volume grayed out. From Microsoft explanation, only when there is adjacent Unallocated space on the right side of this partition, “Extend Volume” feature is available.

To do this, you need professional partition magic software for Windows 7.
