The above picture is the main interface of the built-in disk management tool of Windows Server 2003, from which we can see it only has some basic functions like Change Drive Letter, Delete Local Drive and Format Partition, unable to extend partition size. So we have to resort to the third-party partition magic. However, the idea is hard to realize because much partition magic of function defects appears in the software market along with users' increasing demands for partition mangers. Once used, that kind of software may lead to data losses, let alone increase partition size in Windows Server 2003. To avoid the dangerous situation, the partition manager server MiniTool Partition Wizard, published by the renowned software development company MiniTool Solution Ltd., is suggested.
