How to Increase Size of Server 2003 NTFS System Partition?

"I have an HP desktop computer with Windows Server 2003 operating system. There is a Western Digital hard drive installed on the desktop computer. The problem is the hard disk was partitioned unreasonably and system partition is tool small to install any more programs. What is worse, I often receive low disk space alert on system partition. The system partition is NTFS file system. How can I increase the size of the partition?"

"I need some help to extend a NTFS system partition on my Windows Server 2003. Can anybody tell me how it is possible to extend a system partition without system reinstalling or disk repartitioning?"

Partition Software for NTFS System Partition Resizing

First of all, it is a system partition that needs to be extended on Windows Server 2003. In addition, the system partition is NTFS file system. Therefore, you cannot rely on Diskpart command because it cannot extend a system partition. You can use partition software IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server to extend a NTFS system partition. This partition software has the function of not only resizing Western Digital hard disk, but also resize any other brand of hard disk such as Seagate, Maxtor, Samsung and more.

Diskpart to Extend NTFS Partition 2003 Server

If you just want to extend a data volume which is NTFS file system, you can use Diskpart command. Diskpart is able to extend a NTFS data volume effectively when there is unallocated space right behind the partition you want to extend. However, Diskpart command cannot move a partition. Therefore, if there is no unallocated space or if the unallocated space is not right behind the partition you want to extend, you cannot expand the partition by running Diskpart command. In such a situation, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server is helpful with extending data volume space effectively and efficiently.

Extend FAT32 System Partition Windows Server 2003

System partition can also be FAT32 file system. Unfortunately, Diskpart command cannot extend an FAT32 partition, either. If you need to extend a system partition which is FAT32 file system, partition software is still needed. IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server can work perfectly on resizing FAT32 system partition. In addition, this partition software is also available for resizing FAT32 data partition. No matter you want to extend a system partition or data partition, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server enables you to perform partition resizing without rebooting.

Disk Management on Windows Server 2003

On Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, Windows built-in Disk Management can extend and shrink a partition. However, Disk Management on Windows Server 2003 can create, delete and format partition, but it cannot extend a partition. Therefore, you had better not put your hope on Disk Management if you want to extend a partition on Windows Server 2003.

When you cannot extend a system partition with Diskpart command or Disk Management, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server can help with partition resizing in an easy and efficient way.
