I Want to Extend System Partition on Windows Server 2003 R2

"The system partition on my computer running Windows Server 2003 R2 OS is too small to install any new program, so I decide to extend the system partition. I have tried Diskpart command to extend the system partition, but system says that the selected volume cannot be extended. I also tried some partition software, but some of them ask me to reinstall system in order to get system partition extended. I don’t want to wipe any data, reinstall system or repartition hard disk. I just want to increase the size of system partition on Windows Server 2003 with a simple yet useful method. Can you give me some advice?"

Unallocated Space Is Need to Extend System Partition

Whether you run Diskpart command or IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server to extend a partition, unallocated space is needed. Unallocated space refers to the space on the hard disk is not allocated to any partition. Usually, as long as there is free space on a partition, you can shrink the partition to squeeze some unallocated space. In this situation, the unallocated space will be located behind the partition you shrink. For instance, if you shrink D drive to squeeze some unallocated space, the unallocated space will be located behind D drive. If you want to add the unallocated space to extend C drive, you still need to move the unallocated space close to C drive.

Instead, you can only rely on partition software like IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server to extend the system partition.
