    Dear,

    Increasing the size of the drive, on which Windows 8 is installed, is a risky procedure when doing manually.
    This can disable the Windows 8 to boot.
    You can do this with anyone of the following free software that can do the same with a few clicks:


    > EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition one (best available)


    >
    Parted Magic

    >
    Partition Resizer

    Thanks!

    You can always create space in C:\ drive by removing Apps from the system.Click start--control panel--programs--Select Programs which can be uninstalled--Uninstall,this is how to remove the unused unimportant applications.Click start--control panel--administrative tools--Disk Cleanup, run this utility and clean the c-drive from temporary files, recycle bin, setup log files, and many more junk files.These will create space in the drive.Again run Disk Defragmenter under Administrative Tools, and manage space in c-drive.This can create good amount of space in c-drive.

    To increase the disk space follow these steps

    • You can increase the space by deleting the unnecessary files
    • Perform Disk clean up on windows 8 if this does not solve your problem then follow these steps
    • By using the third part software you can increase the disk space
    • Because the windows 8 system has no built in option to increase the storage spce
    • Then app that is used for this purpose is Easeus Partition Master or Minitool Partition Wizard Professional
