Partition Software to Resize C Drive Server 2003 without Data Loss

Although you may try the solution above to fix low disk space on Windows Server 2003, all solutions above have their limitations. For example, deleting or moving files cannot repair the low disk space problem thoroughly. Diskpart command only allows you to extend a data volume which has NTFS file system. Besides, adjacent unallocated space is always needed when you want to run Diskpart command to extend a partition. Because of those limitations, the best way to fix low disk space on C drive on Windows Server 2003 is to use partition software.

By using this partition software, you can extend C drive without repartitioning hard disk or deleting any data. You just need to move the mouse and perform several mouse drags so as to get C drive extended. This partition software provides a safe way to extend C drive space without affecting any data on the original place.
