If you don't want to receive the low disk space warning on C drive, you need to ensure that C partition has enough free disk space.

Therefore, you need to use advanced partition resizer software like IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server to extend the C drive when it reports low disk space warning on Windows Server 2003.

How to Allocated Free Disk Space?

When you want to extend a C drive, free disk space is needed. There is no free disk space near C drive? Then you will need to allocate free disk space from another existing data partition.

The Reasons Why C Drive Gets Full

Even if you have tried you best to avoid saving data to C drive, you still find the free space on C drive becomes less and less and finally it almost fills up. In fact, the reasons why the free disk space is being reduced on C drive include the following factors:
1. The data stored on C drive will occupy the free disk space
2. Temporary files such as temporary setup files, temporary Internet files, temporary Log files, temporary offline files and more. Every time you visit a website, you run your computer, or you install a program on your PC, Windows will create temporary files which will remain on C drive and take up free disk space.
3. Unreasonable system settings, which may occupy free disk space on C drive.
4. If your computer is infected with virus or Trojan, it may occupy free disk space on C drive and get C drive full.

Following Situation Is beyond IM-Magic Partition Resizing

Although IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server is an advanced and useful partition resizer, we would like to keep you informed that this software might be not helpful with partition resizing in following situation:

I have a 250GB Toshiba hard drive installed on my Server 2003. I partitioned the hard drive into 4 partitions on my Server, but I find all partitions are nearly full. I delete some data from the data partition, but the free space has been eaten up soon. I learned that some partition resizer tools is able to extend disk partition, can I extend the C partition on my Server 2003?

Well, Windows 2003 C drive can be extended by IM-Magic Partition Resizer only on condition that there is free disk space on other partitions. If all partitions are full, no partition resizer tool is able to extend a partition. What you need to do is to change a hard disk drive.
