Users That Need Space on Windows Server 2008 C Partition

"I bought a 160GB SATA hard disk last year and installed it on my Windows Server 2008 computer. When installing the hard disk, I divided it into three partitions, namely C drive, D drive and E drive. Recently, I encountered a problem on the C drive, because I frequently receive low disk space warning message on it. It asks me to delete some files to free up space, but the problem is that I cannot delete any file from this partition.

Instead of repartitioning hard disk or moving files, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server enables you to resize hard disk by moving free space from the partition that has lots of free space.

On the contrary, the professional partition software helps you move free space from the partition rather than deleting or moving any file. In such a way, you can avoid unexpected data loss in the data moving process.
