How to repartition a hard drive easily and safely?

The process of realizing hard disk storage capacity
Currently, hard disk is a kind of popular storage devices. Users who know hard disk know hard disk itself does not have storage capacity. Before it leaves the factory, manufacturer will perform a low-level formatting for it, and it is this operation that gives hard disk real storage capacity. However, after we own a brand new hard disk, we may find it can not store any data. Why? In fact, the reason is that the hard disk does not have a system used to organize and manage file data. To use a brand new hard disk, we must format and repartition hard drive first to get a clear norm for organizing and managing file data. However, users often format and repartition a hard drive when using it for the first time. At that time, we do not know the later storage demands, so we reparation hard drive optionally. When the original partition can not meet our current storage demands, what should we do? I believe repartitioning hard disk is the last choice for many users. Well then, how to repartition a hard drive?
