Resize Server System Partition - How to Resize System Partition on Windows Server

Most Windows Server users have run into such kind of problem:

  • The system partition is lacking of free disk space, so they cannot install a large program.
  • The system partition is nearly full and they frequently receive low disk space warning message.
  • The computer runs slower and slower due to insufficient free space on system partition.
  • Computer got crashed because there no enough free space on system partition.
If you are a Windows Server user, who meet one or more similar problem like above, it is necessary for you resize system partition.

How to Resize System Partition on Windows Server?
Partition software is needed in order to resize a system partition. Windows Server OS is different from other Windows operating system like Windows 7 or Windows XP, etc, so you need to use a partition tool that can work on Windows Server OS. Partition software is specially designed for all Windows Server users like Windows 2000/2003/2008/2012, SBS 2003/2008, etc to resize disk partition including system partition and data partition. Therefore, you can download and install partition software to your computer and follow the steps below to resize system partition easily.

Step1. Launch the partition software and it will display all partitions that can be found on your computer. You can right click a partition that has large free disk space and choose "Resize/Move" option.
Step2. When you see the mouse shows double arrows symbol, you can shrink the selected partition by moving the arrows rightward or leftward. Then, you can see some free space which will be shown as unallocated volume.

Step3. You need to move the unallocated volume close to the system partition. Then, you can right click the system partition and choose "Resize/Move" option.
Step4. Move the arrow when it shows double arrows symbol and then click "Apply" button to extend system partition.

What Should You Pay Attention to Perform Server System Partition Resize?
1. Partition software enables you to resize system partition without removing or deleting any data, so you don’t need to worry that data will be lost after partition resizing.
2. Unallocated space is needed in order to extend system partition. If there is no unallocated space, you need to squeeze some free space from other partition which has enough free space.
3. You need to move the unallocated space close to system partition in order to add the unallocated space to system partition.

I need to extend the system partition on my Windows Server 2008 in order to improve the performance of my computer. There are two partitions on my Server except system partition, and both of them have a lot of free space. However, when I open Disk Management, the "Extend Volumes" option is shown grey. Then, how can I extend system partition on Windows Server 2008?

It is really good news for all Windows Server 2008 users that Disk Management enables them to extend or shrink disk volume without relying on third-party partition software. However, when the "Extend Volumes" is grayed out, you will be unable to extend the partition. What happened? Well, probably, Disk Management only allows you to extend a NTFS partition. What is more, adjacent unallocated space is needed in order to extend a partition, but Disk Management doesn’t have the function of moving an unallocated space. When you cannot extend system partition with help of Disk Management on Windows Server 2008, partition software is available because this partition software is able to move an unallocated volume and extend system partition (NTFS and FAT32 file system) with no limitation.

I have Windows Server 2003 installed on my computer with C drive and D drive. The C drive, working as a system partition, is running on low disk space. The D drive still has lots of free space. So I want to move some free space from D drive to C drive. I learned that partition software can do such a work, but I haven’t found a useful one.

Partition software is the best choice to resize disk partition on Windows Server 2003. Partition software is useful and powerful to resize system partition and data partition when the partition runs on low disk space. Partition software is also a reliable partition software because it will not affect the performance of your Server or cause any damage to your data and system.
