Note:

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.

Step 3:

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 [10240]. Then click [Shrink]. It should be noted that the amount of compressed space should be less than [available compressed space]
