Although Windows Server 2008 was officially released on February 27, 2008, most computer users are not quite unfamiliar with it. Therefore, many users do not know which software is best to change partition size in Windows Server 2008.
I carefully allocated the size of partitions on Windows Server 2008. But, as time goes by, there is little free space in my system partition. Therefore, I want to increase the partition size without influencing the original data.
If users want to use Windows built-in disk management tool to change partition size, they should promise this is a NTFS partition for this tool does not support resizing FAT partition. Besides, if there is no unallocated space just after the target partition which needs increasing, the “Extend Volume” will be grayed out.
Since Windows built-in disk management tool cannot work well, we suggest using partition management software. However, users must be careful when selecting a partition magic server since some has functional defects. Here, MiniTool Partition Wizard is highly recommended for it enjoys more than 10 million downloads and has excellent performance and high security. Next, let’s see the detailed operations.
Firstly, launch the best partition software to get its main interface as following:
This is the main interface of the partition magic server. To change partition size in Windows Server 2008, users should select the partition which needs changing, and then they will see all feasible functions in action panel, including “Move/Resize Partition”, “Extend Partition”, “Merge Partition”, and “Split Partition”. Please select a suitable function to adjust partition size according to actual demands. Here, we take “Extend Partition” for example.
In this window, take free space from other existing partitions, and then drag the sliding button to a desirable place to determine how much free space to take. After that, click “OK” button to return to the main interface.
In this interface, users can preview C drive space has increased from 8.4 GB to 25.4 GB, but this effect hasn’t been applied to computer. To successfully change partition size in Windows Server 2008 with this best partition software, click “Apply” button in the left of tool bar.
