Recently, I found such a problem on forum:
I want to extend the C drive on my Server 2003 by using partition tool. It says an unallocated disk volume is needed in order to extend C, so I make a free disk space firstly. But I still cannot extend the C drive. What’s wrong?
Actually, extending a partition is based on free space on a disk, so you often need to select a partition that has enough free disk space and shrink this partition to produce free space, which will usually be shown as an unallocated volume. Usually, the unallocated volume is located beside the selected partition. If you want to extend C drive, you must move the unallocated volume close to C. Otherwise, you cannot extend the C partition even if there is an unallocated volume on your PC.
