Disk Management Extend C Drive on Server 2008

Disk Management on Windows Server 2008 allows you to extend C drive, but unallocated space is needed. And you should ensure that the unallocated space is right behind the C drive. If there is no unallocated space, you can rely on Disk Management to shrink a partition to produce some unallocated space. However, the difficult thing is how can you move the unallocated space close to C drive? If there is no unallocated space or the unallocated space is not behind the C drive, you will find that the "Extend Volume" option will gray out.

For example, when you shrink D drive, the unallocated space will be created behind this partition. If you want to move the unallocated space close to C drive, you need to backup data on D drive and then delete this partition.

Add Larger Hard Disk to Fix Low Disk Space on C

If you don't want to delete or move any data and you don't want to use any partition software, you can add a larger hard disk. You can install another hard disk on the same hard disk without removing the existing hard disk. In such a way, you can remain the original data. You can move some data from the existing hard disk to the new added hard disk so that you can free up some space. You can also add another hard disk to replace the current hard disk. When building a new hard disk on your computer, you had better allocate more space to C drive.
