The Most Important Thing – Data Security

If there is no important data on the C drive, you may reinstalling operating system and format the partition to erase C drive. However in most time, C drive often contains a lot of important data when it is running out of disk space. IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server is able to increase the size of C drive without formatting the partition or deleting any data from the partition. For example, the total space of C drive is 100GB and only several GB space or even less left now, you can use IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server to extend the C drive to a larger size instead of erasing the partition.

Extend C Drive Rather Than Reinstalling System

When C drive is nearly full, some uses may move necessary data to other partitions and reinstall system and then format the C drive. Once system has been reinstalled, they will move the original data back to the C drive. However, although you may fix the low disk space issue with the method, the capacity of C drive is not changed and the free space may be eaten up soon. Only increase the size of C drive can you solve the low disk space problem on C drive Server 2003 thoroughly.

Free Space Is Needed on the Same Hard Disk

On a computer, it may contain more than one hard disk. In this situation, you can only move free space on the same hard disk. You cannot move free space from other hard disk to extend the C drive. If there is no free space on the hard disk, you may need to change a new hard disk. If there is free space on other partition on the same hard disk, you can use IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server to shrink the partition that has a lot of free disk space to produce an unallocated volume, and then you can add the unallocated volume space to C drive to increase the size of C drive.
