Why Extend System Partition C Drive Windows Server?

All partitions have been allocated with certain space randomly or carefully when building in Windows Server. The total size of each partition will not change unless you repartition or resize the hard disk, but the free space on a partition will become less and less along with the increasing used space. You may think to move some files to other partitions, but how much space can you free by moving files? You may think to format the partition to free disk space, but you may find that you are unable to format a system partition? You may think to reinstall system to format system partition, but can you afford to lose everything stored on this partition? It seems like that there is no good solution when system partition is lacking of disk space, but the truth is that you can extend system partition on Windows Server without moving data, reformatting disk or reinstalling system.

Shrink Partition to Extend System Partition

From the steps above, you know may know that unallocated space is needed in order to extend system partition, so you always need to shrink partition if there is no unallocated space. Usually, you can shrink any partition on the same hard disk to squeeze some unallocated space, but it is often recommended you to shrink a partition that has large free disk space. The reason why we advise you to do so is to avoid insufficient space on the partition after shrinking.

For example, there are C drive, D drive and E drive on your Windows Server. If D drive has 50GB free space while E drive still has 100GB free space, it is better to shrink E drive to squeeze some unallocated space. If you shrink D drive, the free space on D drive might be insufficient when you want to save a large amount of data.

PS: If there is unallocated space on the same hard disk, you can add the unallocated space to C drive without shrinking any partition.
