How To Resize A Disk Partition In Windows Vista

I learned the hard way that programs like Partition Magic don’t work on Windows Vista. So that led me to the question: How do I resize partitions without losing any data with Windows Vista installed? Good news! Windows Vista can manage your partition resizing with its built-in partition tool.

1) Click on the Start menu

2) Right click on Computer and click on Manage

3) If you get a User Account Control dialog here; just click Continue

4) In the left pane, open up the Storage category and click on Disk Management

5) Here you'll see all the partitions for your hard drive configuration. Right click on the partition you’d like to modify.

6) Click on Extend Volume or Shrink Volume to extend or shrink the selected partition.

While not as robust as programs like Partition Magic which allow you to merge partitions without losing data (a very handy feature), Windows Vista Disk Management's partition feature allows the basic functions of resizing partitions or creating new partitions fairly easy for those with a basic knowledge of partitioning.

ScreenshotA Comment From Judith
I kept reading positive comments about Registry Mechanic in your InfoAve Premium Newsletter so I finally bought it for my year old laptop. That was about six weeks ago, I've had no problems with it and last week I bought another subscription of it for my 3 year old PC. It found/repaired 908 problems. Registry Mechanic is one tool I would recommend for sure. I use IE 7. Judith - happy computer user.

A Comment From Jim R.
"...before I knew about Registry Mechanic, I downloaded a different registry cleaner. In the scan it found almost 1000 errors. When I got Registry Mechanic, it found 600 errors. I have often wondered about the difference. Then I got your wonderful 3rd e-book. You speak often of registry cleaners that cause problems. I believe that I was saved from a problem by going with Registry Mechanic. You two are the greatest! Take Care, Jim R..."
