Most of us have issues with the size of C: Drive after using our system for a long period. In some cases, we us a smaller size C: Drive and after installing many software's and games, we will have very small amount of space left on the C: Drive. In this condition, we may think to increase the size of C: Drive by adding some free space from other partitions. But, unfortunately this option is not available in the operating system. So, we need a third party software to do this.
In some other cases, we use only single partition with the full size of the hard disk which we use for both OS and personnel files which we got from the manufacturer like this. Most of them are not considering to split the partition and using it as is. But, if we encounter an issue with the OS and if we need to format the system, we will lose all of the personnel data also while formatting. So, to keep our personnel files and to format the OS alone, we need a third party software.
So, we are going to use Hiren's Boot CD which can run on our System independently from the CD without the need of an Operating System. This CD has an inbuilt OS called Mini Windows which will boot from CD and can run on any hardware. So, to do this, get Hiren's Boot CD from the Dowloads Section and insert it, then boot from it.
Now select Mini Windows XP or Mini Windows 7 to boot from. Then find HBCD Menu from the Desktop or Taskbar Tray and open it. In HBCD Menu, click Programs, find the section Partition / Boot / MBR and open Partition Wizard.
On Partition Wizard, you will find all your Hard Disks and Partitions listed. Find the C: Drive which you want to resize, right click on it, then click Move/Resize. Then a dialog box will open prompting you to resize the drive by just dragging the edge of the partition. You can resize it in both ways, from the front or from the back which will create an unpartitioned space on before or beside the partition you have resized respectively. Then click OK.
Then you will find an unallocated space on your disk. If you want to create a new partition on the unallocated space, just right click on it and select Create, and enter the size of the partition, if you want to occupy all the space left, just leave the size as is, and click OK.
Still all the changes you did is not applied on your disk unless you click Apply button. So, click Apply now to apply all the changes on your disk. This may take some time depending on the size of the partition being resized and the size of the data on the partition. So be patient and let it do the work for you...

In this Topic, we are going to see what are the ways we can boost our system performance and what are the major causes of loosing performance in our windows computer. 1. Disk Defragmentation... (While using Hard Disk Drive, not for SSD) Disk defragmentation is the process of consolidating fragmented data on a volume (such as a hard disk or a storage device) so it will work more efficiently. Fragmentation happens to a volume over time as you save, change, or delete files. The changes that you save to a file are often stored in a different place on the volume than the original file. This doesn't change where the file appears in Windows—only where the bits of information that make up the file are stored on the actual volume. Over time, both the file and the volume itself become fragmented, and your computer slows down as it has to look in different places to open a single file. Disk Defragmenter is a tool that rearranges the data on your volume and reunites fragmented d
In this tutorial we are going to see the advanced reboot options including safe mode and disabling driver signature enforcement on Windows 8/8.1 & 10. To do this go to Start, Power and then Restart before clicking restart you have to press and hold shift. If you do so you will get an advanced reboot menu which includes continue, troubleshoot, and turn off your PC. Select Troubleshoot, Under troubleshoot you will have refresh your PC, reset your PC, and advanced options. Refreshing and Resetting is for completely Re installing your operating system with and without deleting your personal data. If you're having problems with Windows 10 on your PC, you can try to refresh, reset, or restore it. Reset your PC prepares the PC for recycling or for transfer of ownership by reinstalling the OS, removing all user accounts and contents (e.g. data, Classic Windows applications, and Universal Windows apps), and restoring preinstalled cu
In this tutorial, we are going to learn some of the Run commands that we can use on Windows Computers to do some special tasks, here we have some of those useful commands with their work and descriptions listed here. This will be helpful for the learners and the people who are looking for a job in IT Industries. On the Microsoft Windows operating system, the Run command is used to directly open an application or document whose path is known. It functions more or less like a single-line command line interface. In the GNOME interface, the Run command is used to run applications via terminal commands. It can be accessed by pressing Alt+F2. KDE has similar functionality called KRunner. It is accessible via the same key binds. In the BASIC programming language, RUN is used to start program execution from direct mode, or to start a overlay program from a loader program. Sl.
