To make up defects in Windows disk partition management, Microsoft adds 2 new functions to system built-in disk management tool since Windows Vista, namely “Extend Volume” and “Shrink Volume”. Nevertheless, many users find they are still unable to resize FAT32 partition for Server 2008 with new functions. What’s the reason? We are sorry to tell users these 2 new functions do not support operating FAT partition, so users had better turn to third-party partition magic. Here, professional partition management software MiniTool Partition Wizard is recommended.
This partition magic is designed with multiple functions to resize FAT32 partition, NTFS partition, and other types of partition. After running it and choosing the partition which needs resizing, we can see all these functions:
Functions boxed with red line can help resize FAT32 partition for Server 2008, but users had better choose different functions in different situations, which can help avoid many unnecessary operations.
If users want to shrink a certain partition so as to get unallocated space, “Move/Resize Partition” is a good choice.
If users want to extend partition but there is no unallocated space neighboring to target partition, choose “Extend Partition”.
If users want to merge 2 small partitions to a larger one, click “Merge Partition”.
If users hope to split a large partition to 2 small partitions, choose “Split Partition”.
Now, resize FAT32 partition for Server 2008 by using this partition magic in accordance with practical demands.
