Introduction

One of the most debilitating factors of using Windows is that sometimes you are not able to control the various disk operations like extending or formatting a particular drive, just because Disk Management won't let you do that and that specific option is greyed out from the options list.

Many factors contribute to developing such a situation and should be dealt with accordingly. Like you get an error that Windows server 2012 r2 cannot extend volume regardless of the volume or disk you choose or the specific Server which you are using as your operating system.

Disk Management fails to extend volume

Windows has supplied the user with this tool called "Disk Management" and is supposed to cover various disk operations of your choice, but in general, it has its own limitations;

  • You cannot extend or shrink the C drive, due to administration privileges
  • Various options like extending and formatting are greyed out
  • Allocated space could not be provided to the drives of our choice
  • Without formatting a drive, there is no chance for you to extend or shrink it in size
  • Substantial data loss and system failure is likely to occur
  • It does not provide a user-friendly or straightforward interface to work with
