Resize, Merge, Copy Partitions using Partition Manager

With the growing influence of digitalization in our daily lives, our computer systems possess massive amounts of data files that are important to us.

It is quite significant to systematically arrange these data files in our disk so as to retrieve them quickly as and when required.

Depending upon the file formats such as pictures, music, documents, etc., we sort our data into different folders or rather partitions.

At times many of these partitions become full, and we feel an urge to resize them. We may even want to resize all existing partitions to make way for new partitions.

So what to do when you want to reorganize the part or entire drive structure on your physical disk?

Enter Partition Magic!
