Many Server users may encounter various kinds of partition problems and that system partition space is insufficient is very common. For Server, this situation is very terrible, for it not only influences data information storage, but also affects operating speed of Server, or even worse, leads to Server crash. Therefore, solving the problem of system partition space shortage is urgent. For users of Windows Server 2008, the function "Extend Volume" of built-in disk management tool is able to help us solve the problem easily. But as to earlier Server operating systems (OS), for example Windows Server 2003, the built-in disk management tool is not equipped with the function of extending OS partition, so for users of Windows Server 2003, lack of system partition space is hard to settle.
