Description: The way to extend a partition by deleting free space partition will be shown for users in the article. Changes will be done just with a few clicks in MiniTool Partition Wizard.

The problem is that the free space in the screenshot above cannot be deleted to make an unallocated space. That is to say the E: and G: are unable to be extended to the free space, and the space can only be used to create a logical drive. Who can tell me how to delete free space partition to extend other partition?

Solution: Please keep in mind that the dark green box in the picture refers to extended partition. It can hold a lot of logical partitions. Without emptying the whole extended partition (including partition I), the free space that contained in extended partition cannot be deleted.

Note: the free space is generated by logical partition, and unallocated space is produced by primary partition.

This free partition manager is powerful and professional. Just with several clicks, users can complete the task of extending partition without data loss.
