Users That Run into Low Disk Space on Server System Partition

"There is only little available space left on system partition on my computer, so I am trying to expand the size of this partition. My computer is running under Windows Server 2008 operating system. The Extend Volume option under Disk Management is greyed out, so I cannot extend the system partition there. Is there any other way to increase size of system partition on Windows Server 2008?"

"Windows Server 2003 is running out of disk space on C drive system partition. Can you tell me if it is possible to resize the hard disk on Windows Server 2003 without repartitioning hard disk? The hard disk on the Server is a 160GB Seagate hard disk, which was divided into two drives on my computer. There is some free space on the other partition, so I am wondering if I can move some free space from the other partition to C drive. Can anybody give me a clue?"

If you want to resize system partition without repartitioning hard disk, the best solution is to use the partition software. IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server enables you to shrink a partition to create unallocated space and extend any partition without repartitioning hard disk drive. This partition software allows you to extend system partition on Windows Server such as Server 2003, 2008, 2012, SBS 2003 / 2008 and Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2.

Extend FAT32 Partition without Rebooting PC

IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server is an advanced partition tool which is able to extend system partition and data partition effectively and efficiently. On the one hand, you have no need to waste time reinstalling system by using this free Server partition magic software to perform partition resizing because it will not have any influence on the operating system. On the other hand, this partition software is able to extend system partition whether it is FAT32 or NTFS partition without rebooting your PC. You only need to spend a short time to get the system partition expanded when it is running on low disk space. This partition software also supports RAID 5 array to help resize disk partition when there is no enough free space.

Other Solution for Windows Server Partition Resizing

1. You can run Diskpart command to extend a partition on Windows Server, but Diskpart can only extend data volume which has NTFS file system. In the other words, if you want to extend system partition or FAT32 partition, Diskpart command will fail to extend the partition.

2. You can run Disk Management on Windows Server 2008 to perform partition resizing, but the adjacent unallocated space is always needed in order to get the partition extended. If there is no adjacent unallocated space, you cannot extend any partition under Disk Management.
When you are unable to extend system partition by relying on Diskpart command or Disk Management, the best solution is to use IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server.
