Partition Resize


Iam running short of space in my C drive and I have other drives where free space is there. The OS is win xp pro, is there any software (freeware) where i can increase the partition size.

I tried with Power Quest Partiotion Magic 8.0 but it is a paid software version.

Win Vista and Win 7 have it inbuilt in them. If you plan to somehow upgrade to one of these OSes, you can partition/resize your hdd easily for free from the computer management console.
if C drive have windows installed u cant resize this partition....(c is not system drive then u can resize drive with any utility ).

u can mount .. to extend the space in c drive....

u can borrow any neightbour drive space for ur c system drive...

for xp: right click on my computer > manage > disk management > select  C drive > right click > change drive letter and path > click add button > click on mount on following empty folder > browse > select any drive which have extra free space > create new folder in drive (eg in d drive ,create folder named "c drive") > click ok until exit.. > u can see in drive icon as a mounted..

by this method u can utilize any free partition space for ur system c drive...
