How to repartition server 2008 r2?

Disk Management an ultimate tool which allows the user to perform extended disk operations including to extend, merge, shrink or create a new volume. But unfortunately, it does not facilitate the user to repartition an already partitioned volume. Sounds strange? Let us grab the handle over this statement.

Actually, there are two scenarios; the first one is where you have a volume or partition and you want to extend it or delete it or maybe merge it with some other partition. It means that you have applied a particular operation over the concerned partition. And in the 2nd scenario where you again need to extend, merge or shrink the already processed partition is called the “Repartition”.

It is already enough complex and then there is Disk Management which hardly allows the user to facilitate the disk operation and then asking about “Repartition” not happening on disk management’s watch. And if somehow Disk Management can pull off such thing is only when you agree to format the partition completely.
