Server 2019 Cannot Extend Volume

One of the common problems Windows users face today is unable to extend volume or resize partitions. This problem is common to most Windows servers including Server 2019.

The many perks incorporated into the new server – 2019 made many people upgrade their existing Windows server, thinking the issue of C drive out of space will be put to rest once and for all. Little did they know that same old story lingers even to the new Windows server.

You can only imagine the frustration that comes with being unable to extend volume in your computer C drive server 2019 and the C drive is running out of space.

From opening applications to performing simple tasks and everything between becomes much of a hassle. They are either responding slowly or not responding at all.

Why Server 2019 Cannot Extend Volume?

Every Windows server, of course server 2019 too, comes with a built-in disk manage tool called the disk management, which helps windows users to shrink or extend partitions but sometimes these options are grayed out, making it impossible for such a user to extend C drive volume in server 2019.

Why? The primary reason why server 2019 cannot extend volume or why the extend volume option is grayed out is because the partition just adjacent to the C drive does not have unallocated space.

In such cases, the disk management tool is of no use, leaving you with no other option than using 3rd party software which can help extend C drive in server 2019.
