However, still a lot of users stick using this operating system, making their PC data risky.

It is a common issue that you may want to change a partition size. Windows Disk Management can only shrink volume by reducing some disk space from the end of a partition, but MiniTool Partition Wizard works differently. No matter you want to reduce the partition size from the right side or left side, it can handle data well. Besides, Partition Wizard even allows moving the location of a partition on condition that there is unallocatedspace adjacent to the partition that needs moving location.
In most cases, there is no unallcoated space on the hard dirve for you to extend a partition, and you may shrink a partition to make some unallcoated space at first and then extend the target partition. By using this partition magic for XP, you will find it is too easy to accomplish this job. Its Extend Partition feature enables you to choose another partition or unallcated space on the same drive to take some free space directly.
In addition to what we mentioned here, there are more functions you may use some day like convert file system, format USB to NTFS, migrate OS to SSD, and more. If you are interested, you may just download this Windows XP partition manager to have a try.
