In order to get a partition expanded, free disk space is required. This guide is telling you how to redistribute disk space from one partition to another without losing data.

Three Steps to Perform:

Two: Move the free disk space to the drive that needs to be expanded by moving other partitions safely

Three: Expand the volume - the System C drive for example
