How to Extend C Drive on Windows Server 2012?

Simply say, you should add unallocated space to C drive so as to get it extended. Usually, unallocated space refers to the space that has not been occupied by any data, so you can add it to other partitions. Therefore, if you want to extend C drive on Windows Server 2012, the first thing you need to do is to check if there is existing unallocated space on the same hard disk. If there is no existing unallocated space, you can generate some by shrinking other partitions that have lots of free space. Then, you can extend the C drive by adding the unallocated space to this partition.

How to Make Unallocated Space on Windows 2012?

When there is no unallocated space, how can you make some on Windows Server 2012? Generally speaking, you can rely on the following two methods to make some unallocated space on Windows Server 2012:
1. Make unallocated space with help of Disk Management
Disk Management on Windows Server 2012 has the function of shrinking partition, so you can make unallocated space by shrinking partition by using Disk Management. The unallocated space will display behind the partition you shrink.
2. Produce unallocated space by using IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server
Third-party partition software IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server also has the function of shrinking partition, so you can also make unallocated space by using IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server.

In order to add the unallocated space to C drive, you still need to move the unallocated space close to C drive. Disk Management doesn't have the function of moving a partition, so you have to delete the partitions between C drive and unallocated space. If you don't want to delete any partition, you need to rely on IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server, with which you can easily move the unallocated space close to C drive without deleting any partition or data. This partition software works on Windows Server 2012, SBS 2012 and other Windows Servers.
