Resize Windows server partition

  • At the beginning of configuring computer, we need to partition the hard disk to facilitate storing data. Many users may pay little attention to partition space management, and they think that as long as the hard disk can store data, everything is OK. Therefore, many people's partition size which has been used for a long time is allocated by service staff. However, after a long time, many users will meet many partition management problems. For example, partition is out of space; partition is so few, which is inconvenient to store data with classification. Reasons resulting in these kinds of problems of partition management are mainly attributed to original partition mode, so we need to make a good plan for our computer when we are configuring the computer, otherwise it is very difficult to adjust partition mode after a long time.

    Of course, there is a solution to problems of partition management. For example, the problem that partition is out of space or that partition is so few can be solved by adjusting the partition. Many users may think about asking system built-in disk management tool for help first when these kinds of problems occur. However, users who require strong computer operability know system built-in disk management tool can only realize some simple partition management. For example, under commonly seen Windows XP, its system built-in disk management tool can only delete partition, create partition, format partition, and perform other simple partition management. As to Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7, although partition shrinking and partition extending have been added to their built-in disk management tool, operations of these functions are restricted to a large extent. Therefore, problems of partition management also can bring us much inconvenience. Especially for server, if server partition management problems can not be solved timely, great losses will come. Therefore, to solve these kinds of problems like partition space insufficiency, the third party partition magic is indispensible. With a good partition magic, we can resize partition completely, solving the problem of partition space insufficiency fundamentally. As to partition magic, MiniTool Partition Wizard is the best choice.

    Although we have talked about the powerful functions of this partition magic, detailed partition management operation is also needed to make users know its functions better. First, visit the official website https://www.partitionwizard.com/ to download this free partition magic. After installing it in the computer, please run it to get the above main interface which shows Windows Server system partition is out of space. Well, at this time, our purpose is to extend Windows Server system partition. However, to extend Windows Server system partition, there must be unallocated space, so we need to shrink the partition which has much unused space left to get unallocated space. Here, E partition is the desired partition. Select E partition, and then click "Move/Resize" button on the tool bar to resize Windows Server partition.

    In the above interface, drag triangles on both sides of the partition handle to get desired unallocated space, and then click "OK" to go back to the main interface:

    When going back to the main interface, we can see a pending operation clearly. However, we can not extend Windows Server system partition with this unallocated space. That is because partition extension should be on the basis that there is unallocated space adjacent to the destination partition, so we need to move partition location with the function "Move/Resize":

    When getting the above state, we can extend Windows Server system partition. Select the system partition, and then click "Move/Resize" to realize extension.

    After finishing the above operations, please click "Apply" to perform all original operations, and then we are successful to extend Windows Server system partition.
    With such easy operations, we have solved the problem of partition space insufficiency without data damage or data loss, so users can use this free partition magic trustingly.
