After buying laptop from a vendor, I asked him to help me partition the disk and install Windows Server 2003. However, I finally found the system partition – C drive in the computer is configured to have only 50 GB, while a data partition has almost 100 GB. I guess the disk space allocation is the exact reason that I am suffering – low disk space on system partition. The snaillike running speed and system crash freak me out. Thus, I urgently need to get C drive resized. There is a self-contained Disk Management tool in the system, but I do not know whether it is workable or not. Or need I use third party software for changing hard disk partition size under Windows Server 2003?
Why to Resize Hard Disk Partition
Partition resizing refers to adjust the size of a specified partition according to actual demands, either shrink it or expand it. Users are expected to extend a partition by taking free space form other large-capacity partitions if it runs out of space, while partition shrinking can release some free space. With the help of the two features, users can make better of disk space and optimize system performance. What if Server 2003 partition runs out of space? Indeed, there is a Disk Management tool available to manage partition, but users have to realize partition resizing in an indirect way. For example, if users need to enlarge system partition, they ought to delete partition at first. Then, recreate partition (reset a larger partition capacity, specify a drive letter, format it with NTFS or whatever). Apart casino from the energy-consuming process, partition data security is another concern for computer users. Therefore, software for server hard disk resize is in dire need. Actually, MiniTool Partition Wizard Server Edition is an excellent choice.
