I tired to run Diskpart command, but it cannot help me get the partition extended. Is there any other way to resize FAT32 partition on Windows Server 2012?"

Then, how can you produce unallocated space? You can use the partition software to shrink the partition that has lots of free space so as to squeeze some unallocated space. You should remember that you can only squeeze any partition on the same hard disk. When the unallocated space is created, you still need to move it close to the partition that you want to extend.
