How to resize partition on PA main console
- Back to the PA main console, right-click the partition that you want to release free space. (here we select partition F: as an example), select “Resize”, in the pop-up window drag right handle of the partition leftwards to release the free space. Then click “OK”.
After that you may find an unallocated space behind the partition F:.
- Right-click system partition( C:), select “Merge partition”, in the pop-up window tick the “C: partition” and the “unallocated space”. Click “OK”.
Then back to the PA main console, click “Apply” on the tool bar to commit the operation.
Note: if the target partition is FAT 32 or could not be locked in “EPW” or it contains the paging file, the system would ask for rebooting and the operation will be completed under the PreOS Mode when you click “Proceed”.
