Many users, I believed, have resized Server 2003 partition, because original partition plan can not meet our current storage demands as we store more and more data on Windows Server 2003 partitions. As a result, we can not store important data in appointed place while other partitions have much unused space left, and this partition state will lower disk use ratio largely. At this time, to get optimum disk use ratio and meet our storage demands, we will think about resizing Server 2003 partition. Indeed, this is a good method.
