  • Partition Manager Windows Server 2008 - the Best Tool to Increase Partition Size
    It is believed that most Windows Server 2008 users have met different kinds of partition problems in daily server use, which can be proved by related questions asked on the internet. One of Server 2008 users has asked such a question on the internet: how can I increase system partition size when there is no unallocated space on hard disk?

    Users who just have a basic understanding of Windows Server 2008 may suggest using system built-in disk management tool to realize this operation. Indeed, the function “Extend Volume” which can help increase partition size has been added to Windows Server 2008, but it has big defects. For example, it will not work when there is no unallocated space behind and adjacent to the partition whose size needs increasing. Even if users shrink a neighboring partition with this tool to get unallocated space, they will fail to increase partition size since the unallocated space can only be located behind the resource partition rather than the partition which needs extending. Therefore, third-party partition manager Windows Server 2008 is the best tool for Server 2008 users to increase system partition size.

    Nevertheless, it is not easy for most users to find a suitable partition manager for Windows Server 2008 since they lack professional knowledge.
