Why you need a disk partition software?

Why would you want a disk partition software in the first place? Well, Low disk space is a common problem when using Windows Server 2008/2012/2016 R2. Windows Server does not allow you to manage partitions and disk space at the time of installation, therefore, people are more likely to encounter low disk space problems after few weeks of installation. As Windows SBS comes with a lot of added features, tools, and updates, it does not take long until system drive becomes full due to continuous updates.
