Usually the disk partition size has never been modified. Some users may just use one disk as the single partition, namely just partition c on their OS. Troubles may follow after using server 2003 for a while or a few years.

And increasing the c volume would become a tough job since users do not want to reinstall OS.

Can we increase partition c size?
