Disk Partition Is Getting Full on Windows

A hard disk can be divided into several partitions including system partition and data partition. Disk partition will run out of disk space while more and more data is stored. However, you may not want to delete any data to free up the disk space since all the data is important to you. Then, how can you fix the problem when disk partition is getting full on Windows?

Cases about Low Disk Space Issue on Windows

"D drive only has little available space on my PC with Windows 7 operating system. The other partition C drive still has some free space, so I want to move some free space from C drive to D drive. But I don't want to lose any data during the partition resizing. Can anybody help?"

"Windows Server 2003 runs on low disk space on C drive, but I cannot delete any data from this partition. The Diskpart command failed to help me extend C drive by saying the selected drive cannot be extended. I don't know why it says such a message, but I have no other idea to extend C drive on Windows Server 2003."

Windows Server Extend System Partition

Diskpart can extend disk volume on Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012 and more other Server OS, but unfortunately Diskpart is unable to extend a system partition or an FAT32 partition. If you want to extend system partition without touching the operating system and with data untouched, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server is the best choice because it provides a secure way to extend system partition on Windows Server without losing any data. This partition software is specialized Server partition magic, with which you can extend system partition without reinstalling system or rebooting your computer.

Extend Disk Volume on Windows Server

If the partition you want to extend is not system partition, you can run Diskpart command. What you should know is that Diskpart only allows you to extend NTFS partition when there is contiguous unallocated space behind the partition you want to extend. In another word, if the partition you want to extend is FAT 32 file system, you need to convert it to NTFS before you can perform partition resizing. Besides, if there is no contiguous unallocated space, Diskpart command will fail to extend the partition, too. However, if you can use IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server, you can extend a disk volume without facing all these problems mentioned above because this software enables you to making unallocated space easily and allows you to extend NTFS and FAT32 partition.
