How to resize partition windows server 2003

  • Most users may hear of Windows Server 2003, but there are a few people who have used it. That is because it is a professional server operating system, and it is used on server in general situation. As the terminal machine, server should bear more pressure of data, software and hardware. Therefore, common systems are difficult to handle this task. As server interchanges and stores more and more data as time goes by, some server partitions can not meet our increasing storage demands. At this time, we need to resize partition under Windows Server 2003. Well, what kind of partition magic should we choose to resize partition in Windows Server 2003 which requires extremely high data safety?

    How to choose partition magic?
    To resize partition under Windows Server 2003, maybe, what most users think about is system built-in disk management tool. However, like Windows XP built-in disk management tool, Windows Server 2003 built-in disk management tool can only accomplish some basic operations, such as create partition, delete partition and format partition.
