Then, the alert message of low disk space on C drive can pop up when it doesn’t have enough free disk space to meet users’ needs.

Therefore, you still need a solution to solve this problem once and for all.

IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server assists with extending disk partition on Server 2003, Server SBS 2003 and other Windows Server computers with ease. A free disk space is required near the C drive in order to extend the drive, so you need to produce a free disk space first by shrinking another partition that still has much free space.

A Good Habit to Avoid C Drive from Running on Low Disk Space

If you can keep a good habit when using your computer, you may save a lot of space on C drive and protect it from running on low disk space.
Firstly, it will occupy a lot of space on C drive when you save many files on " Desktop" and "My Document". So it is strongly recommended you to save files to other partition such as D drive, E drive, F drive or more.
Besides, C drive space can be eaten up when installing a lot of programs (like games) on your computer. Therefore, you had better uninstall some unnecessary programs from your computer. Please remember: the space on C drive is still occupied if you only delete the programs on "Desktop". You must uninstall the program by using "Add or Remove Programs" in Control Panel.
Finally, you should keep a habit of clearing temporary internet files or cache regularly.
