Change server 2008 partition size

  • Windows Server 2008 would be quite unfamiliar to most ordinary computer user since they scarcely have access to this operating system, let alone resize partition of Windows Server 2008. However, the system build-in disk management tool still fails to cover those functions such as wipe partition, resize partition, merge partition, create partition, delete partition, format partition, convert partition format, copy partition to meet the increasing demands of computer user. Therefore, user should have recourse to third-party partition manager to perform these operations. Among partition managers, MiniTool Partition Wizard Server Edition is a very outstanding one.

    Features of Windows Server 2008
    Windows Server 2008 is built from the same code base as Windows Vista; therefore, it shares much of the same architecture and functionality. Since the code base is common, it automatically comes with most of the technical, security, management and administrative features new to Windows Vista such as the rewritten networking stack; improved image-based installation, deployment and recovery; improved diagnostics, monitoring, event logging and reporting tools; new security features such as BitLocker and ASLR; improved Windows Firewall with secure default configuration; .NET Framework 3.0 technologies, specifically Windows Communication Foundation, Microsoft Message Queuing and Windows Workflow Foundation; and the core kernel, memory and file system improvements. Processors and memory devices are modeled as Plug and Play devices, to allow hot-plugging of these devices. This allows the system resources to be partitioned dynamically using Dynamic Hardware Partitioning; each partition has its own memory, processor and I/O host bridge devices independent of other partitions. Windows Server 2008 includes a variation of installation called Server Core. Server Core is a significantly scaled-back installation where no Windows Explorer shell is installed. All configuration and maintenance is done entirely through command line interface windows, or by connecting to the machine remotely using Microsoft Management Console. However, Notepad and some control panel applets, such as Regional Settings, are available.
