I have a Windows Server 2003 with the following partitions:
Partition C: 20GB NTFS (system and apps)
Partition D: 80GB NTFS (work material)
Partition E: 30GB FAT32 (music)
Partition F: 80GB NTFS (games)
Now, partition C runs out of space, and someone on the internet told me resizing partition can solve this problem. But unfortunately, I do not know how to resize partition in Server 2003 safely and free. Therefore, I badly need useful suggestions.
Undoubtedly, users can change partition size in the process of reinstalling operating system (repartition hard disk), but most users are unwilling to take this solution since it is a piece of troublesome work. Here, the way which is able to resize partition in Server 2003 free will be introduced.
Turning to third-party partition manager is the best way to change partition size, and MiniTool Partition Wizard is available. It provides users with user-friendly interface and detailed prompts so that even users knowing nothing about partition management are able to resize partition in Server 2003 free. Next, let’s take extending partition C for example.
Step 1: launch the partition manager to get its main interface:
Step 2: select partition C and click the function “Extend Partition”.
Step 3: take free space from an existing partition or unallocated space to extend partition C and drag sliding button to decide how much free space to take.
Step 4: apply all changes to computer.
Now, we can say we have been successful to resize partition in Server 2003 safely and free. If users are being troubled by low disk space, download this partition manager to extend partition. If a certain partition is so large and users want to create a new partition, shrink the large partition to release unallocated space. After that, new partition can be created. To shrink a partition, users should select the target partition and click “Move/Resize Partition”, and then shorten partition handle. At last, apply changes. Operations are quite simple.
