  1. Windows vista has shrink and expand functions in disk management, but there must be some unallocated space next to the partition which you want to expand. If there is no unallocated space next to the partition which you want to expand, how to expand this partition? A thirty party tool is a best choice, I hear that many tools can resize partition, such as partition magic, GParted, disk director, easeus partition master……..I would like to use easeus partition master, it is simple to use and easy to resize partition.

  2. I encounterd the problem of resizing windows vista partition with “Shrink” and “Expand” functions in windows disk management.However I do, I cannot resize my partition. But I am able to use the free version of easeus partition master to solve my problem. Thanks john for sharing this.
