Disk partition including system partition and data partition may need to be resized when its space is unreasonable. For example, you may find on your computer, system partition is nearly full but the other partitions are still empty. When the free space on disk partitions is unreasonable, you may want to use partition magic software to resize the disk partition.
If your computer is running Windows Vista/7/8 OS, you may run Windows built-in Disk Management to extend the disk volume. But it requires that there must be an unallocated disk volume close to the partition you want to extend, so Disk Management is not always helpful. Besides, Disk Management on Windows XP OS doesn’t have this function. Therefore, if you want to extend a disk partition on Windows XP, or if there is no free disk space right close to the partition you want to extend on Windows Vista/7/8, you may need to run third-party partition magic software to resize the disk partition.
You may free download IM-Magic Partition Resizer Free, which is compatible with Windows Vista/XP/7/8 Operating System to help with system partition resizing and data partition resizing.
The Disk Management on Windows Server 2003 and SBS 2003 cannot help users resize disk partition, but some user would like to run Diskpart command on Windows 2003 and SBS 2003 to extend a disk partition. However, Diskpart command only allows users to extend a data partition with NTFS file system on Windows Server 2003 and SBS 2003. In addition, it also requires that there must be some free space right close to the partition you want to extend by running Diskpart command. So Diskpart command has limitations too when you want to extend a disk partition.
If you fail to extend disk partition by running Diskpart command, or if you want to extend a system partition on your Server, you may run IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server.
