Windows 2012 Runs out of Space on System Partition

"Hi! I bought a 160GB Western Digital hard disk last year and built it on my PC which runs Windows Server 2012. Recently, I realized that there is little available free space on the system partition. I didn't pay much attention to it because I don't think it has any influence. However, this morning, Windows system began to pop up low disk space warning message when I boot my computer. How can I resolve the problem?"

"There are two partitions on my Windows 2012. The system partition only has less than 200MB free space after I installed a program on it just now. The other partition still has lots of free space. So I am wondering if I can merge these two partitions into one. Can you give me a hand?"

Add Unallocated Space to System Partition

If there is free space on other partitions on the same hard disk when system partition is running out of disk space, you can move the free space so as to extend the system partition. Firstly, you need to shrink the partition that has enough free space and produce some unallocated space. Then, you need to move the unallocated space close to system partition. And finally, you can extend the system partition by adding the unallocated space. All these work can be accomplished perfectly with help of IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server.

Disk Management to Extend System Partition Windows 2012

Windows Server 2012 users can also rely on Windows built-in Disk Management tool to extend system partition. Unallocated space is always needed when you want to extend the system partition, so you need to ensure that there is unallocated space on the same hard disk. You don't need to worry even if there is no existing unallocated space, because you can run Disk Management to shrink disk volume so as to produce some unallocated space. When there is unallocated space, you still need to move the space close to system partition. The disadvantage of Disk Management is that it cannot move a partition, so you still need to rely on IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server to move the unallocated space. Otherwise, you should delete the partitions between the unallocated space and system partition.
