As the computer has been used for longer, we often encounter the situation of insufficient C drive space. Today, Sandra will tell you a very simple way to extend the C drive of the win10 computer system, so that your C drive will once again free up a lot of space.
Go to This PC on your desktop and right-click to choose Manage in the list.
Find the Disk Management behind Storge and click it. now you can see the specific information of each disk
Here we assume that D disk is the disk we need to extend, and then E disk must be a local disk that provides expansion space. This is because the local disk that provides expansion space must be located adjacent to the right /left side of the disk that needs to be extended. What we are extending here is the D disk, and the adjacent one on the right is the E disk, so only the E disk can provide space. Therefore, those who want to extend the C drive must choose the adjacent disk on the right/ left of the C drive as the target to provide expansion space. And before the specific steps, you need to back up the disk files that provide expansion space to avoid losses.
Now we right click the E disk to choose Shrink Volume.
Then we type the amount of space to shrink in MB. Since this is in MB, if we want to compress 10G of space, we have to enter 10G*1024=10240MB, which is the number . Then click [Shrink]. It should be noted that the amount of compressed space should be less than [available compressed space]
Then, we will find there will be a green part that means you have a Free space. Right-click the green part and choose Extend Volume.
Type in theavailable space in MB and click on the Next button.
Now you will find that the D:\disk has been extended. So you can also extend C:\ disk through these steps.
