    My Dell laptop always reminds me that the system partition is in low disk space and needs to be expanded quickly. But, I don’t know what I can do to expand it successfully. I am using Windows 7. How can I expand it step by step?

    You can try to do three things to resolve this low disk space problem:

    1). Delete some unnecessary files or programs on your system partition to free up the partition space.
    You can have many ways to free up your system partition space, like deleting some useless files/folders, uninstall some unnecessary programs and running the Disk Cleanup tool.

    2). Extend your system partition in Disk Management
    Back up everything important on another drive, shrink your rest partition with enough free space and extend your system partition by right clicking it in Disk Management.

    3). Apply some partition resizing tools.
    If you are not so familiar about the partition resizing tuffs, you can directly use some partition resizing tools like: IM-Magic Partition Resizer Free, EaseUS Partition Master, Active Partition Master and more.

    PS: Always back up everything important well before resizing partition in case of data loss.

    I know there are two solutions for you:
    1). Expand this system partition in Disk Management. Shrink or delete one partition and add the created space to your system partition.
    2). Expand your system partition space with professional partition resizing tools. There are many similar tools. Just select an efficient one online.
