Move Free Space to Extend C Drive Windows 2008

Deleting and moving files are the most common way to free up disk space when disk partition is running out of disk space. However, if you want to fix the low disk space problem thoroughly, the best way is to increase the size of the partition. On the one hand, deleting or moving files can only free up little disk space which will be occupied soon when new data is written to the partition. On the other hand, most files stored on C drive is important, so you cannot delete or move any file from C drive when it runs out of disk space. In this situation, you can use the IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server to move free space from other partition to expand C drive space.
