SBS 2003 Partition Management with Diskpart

Well, do you know that Diskpart command enables you to extend partition on Windows SBS 2003? It is true that you can extend partition by running Diskpart, but there are some limitations. First of all, Diskpart command cannot shrink a partition. If there is no unallocated space on the same hard disk, you cannot run Diskpart command to extend the partition that runs on low disk space. In addition, Diskpart only allows you to extend NTFS partition. In the other words, you need to format the partition to NTFS file system before you can run Diskpart to extend it. However, formatting will erase everything on the partition. What is more, Diskpart cannot extend a partition if operating system is installed on it. That is to say Diskpart cannot extend a system partition.
