Windows built-in Disk Managers
Windows Disk Management
As we all know, Disk Management can be regarded as a Windows snap-in free disk manager, which provides several functions to deal with disk troubles, such as, format/delete partition, change drive letter and paths, mark partition as active, etc. however, it does not have the feature of resizing volume.
Windows Diskpart Command
We can know from the Wikipedia, in computing, Diskpart is a command-line hard disk partitioning utility included in editions of Windows NT operating systems since Windows 2000. It has replaced FDISK, which has been used in MS-DOS basedOSs.
Although the Diskpart Command does have the function of extend volume, it can only extend volume right behind which there is an unallocated space. What’s worse, it can not deal with system volume.
