Resize partition

Recommended Posts

Has anyone created script with gui interface that will make or allow re-sizing of disc/particular drive....

Merge free space to C drive if the disc space is low? Something like partition Magic or other utilities?

​I haven't done a GUI in AutoIt, but Windows has GUI tools for doing that built in.  The URL says Vista, but it also works in 7 and 8

Also you can get a free boot CD version of Partition Wizard.  It can do more than the Windows Disk Management.  Especially if the Windows is only Home Premium edition.

I think OP means automating the partition resizing, like if isDiskspaceLow() then add10GBToCPartition() endif or something along those lines. OP, correct me if I'm wrong.

I myself would NOT like to have that automated though, mind you. I prefer to bite my nails up to my elbows watching the process go on for half an hour every time I do that. Or rather, did that, because nowadays I don't (re-)partition anything any more, except for configuring RAID setups maybe. Partitioning a single harddrive? Why, in this time where you can literally buy a harddisk capable of reliably storing multiple TB's for a week's worth of coffee money?
