Best Free Software to Resize and Create Partition in Windows 7

Create partition, resize partition and merge partitions are basic disk operations for PC users. The disk is like a big cabinet and it contains many files and programs. Suppose that I make all these things together, it may bring many troubles when I need to search a specific one. I can't imagine how terrible the situation is. Thus, in order to avoid the unnecessary troubles, the best way is to create some new partitions to manage them separately on the disk.

There are several advantages to create partition. First, with many personal files and programs storing on other drives, it will give a big hand for the system's running speed and its safety. Second, if I save the files according to its sorts, it is easy for me to manage and use these files, and it will save a lot of time, especially for business users. In other word, it may bring some fortunes for them sometimes.

Through the observation of the whole disk, I find other drives have unallocated space. So, I want to make full use of them by releasing space or shrinking drives. Sometimes, the problem may not be occurred to the system volume, but the solution is the same.
