Can You Extend Disk Partition with Diskpart Command

Frankly speaking, Diskpart Command also enables users to extend disk partition. But if you are not a computer technician, you had better not use this command because it is not as simple as you imagine. If you make any mistake in the process, it may cause great disaster. In addition, if you want to run Diskpart command to extend a disk partition, it requires a free volume right close to the disk partition you want to extend. In another word, if the free volume is not close to the partition you want to extend, you are unable to move the free space to the partition with Diskpart command.

In conclusion, if you are a computer expert who is quite familiar with Server OS and there is an unallocated volume right near to the partition you want to extend, you may run Diskpart command to resize the partition. If you just want to look for a simple and safe method to resize partition, a third-party partition resizer like IM-Magic Partition Resizer is always the best choice.
