System Partition Runs out of Space on SBS 2003

"Hello! The system partition on SBS 2003 Server has a low disk space after installing some programs because it is too small. Although I had installed a 500GB hard disk on my computer, the system partition only has 40GB space in total. Now, the system partition is running out of disk space and I doubt if I can expand the system partition space with any software? If anybody has the similar experience, can you tell me how to resize the system partition without reinstalling the SBS 2003 operating system?"

"I build a RAID 5 disk on my PC which runs SBS 2003. Recently, the system partition on RAID 5 is running out of disk space. So I want to know if I can extend the system partition without rebuilding the RAID array or losing any data."

Expand RAID 5 System Partition

Traditionally, you may need to reinstall system and rebuild array so as to reallocate disk space. However, with IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server, you only need to move the mouse and perform a few clicks so that you can reallocate disk space effectively. Usually, you can move free space from other partition on the RAID 5 to extend system partition. If there is only one partition on the RAID 5 or if there is no free space on the RAID 5, you can also expand the system partition space by adding a new disk. The new added disk is often showing as unallocated space, so you can add it to the RAID 5 partition. As professional partition software, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server provides safe way to resize system partition without touching the operating system or disk data.

Resize System Partition without Rebooting
