Disclaimer: This wiki is not official Dell documentation but is compiled by Philip Yip (Dell Community Rockstar natakuc4).The Home Edition of EaseUs Partition Manager may be downloaded from here (and is free to use for Home use). This program is an extremely easy to use tool for carrying out hard drive operations.
Once installed you run it and select the UAC prompt. In the first screen you will get the option to view the user guide or to go to the main screen.
Opting for the main screen we get:
Your harddrives and their partitions will be listed. In addition at the bottom the partition sizes. Operations may be carried out by moving the sliders on each disk (near the bottom).
e.g. If I want to make F: (200 GB opposed to 100 GB)
• I would first need to click on C: (And move the slider so the size is 731.20 GB opposed to 831.20 GB
• Then I would first need to click on F: (And move the slider so the size is 200.00 GB opposed to 100.00 GB).
You may carry out several operations by right clicking on each partition.
Many of these buttons are listed at the top also. Of particular interest is the Delete and Merge Buttons.
When you are done setting up your partitions, select Apply to the top left. The computer will reboot and the program will make the requested adjustments.
Note: It is recommended that you back up all your data on an external hard drive before proceeding.
Note: Repartitioning the hard drive will lose the Dell Factory Image. If you need to reinstall Windows, you will need to do so manually as described in my other wiki A Clean install of Windows.
