C Partition Runs on Low Disk Space on Server 2003

No matter how large is your hard disk on Windows Server 2003, it likely the day will come that the disk partition is running out of disk space on your computer. For example, you may receive low disk space warning on C drive on Server 2003 when you start your computer. It seems like that the space of C drive can be eaten up easily, because the temporary Internet files and cookies are stored on this drive in addition to the system programs and data. The low disk space on C drive can slow down your Server, which may affect the speed of your Internet and your daily life. Therefore, it is highly recommended to extend C drive as soon as possible when it doesn’t have enough space.

This is the easiest and most effective way to fix low disk space problem on C drive in Windows Server 2003.

You can easily increase the size of C drive as long as there is enough free disk space on another partition.

Tip: Free disk space is required in order to increase the size of C drive. If there is no free disk space, you need to squeeze some by shrinking another partition that has enough free disk space. In another word, if all partitions on your Server are running on low disk space, you may need to change a larger hard disk instead of extending the disk partition.
