"Best Partition Manager out there" by hockemoto
have used this program to resize, create, delete, format and even once, rebuild the MBR. This was across 4 large drives of different makes on 11 different partitions. All this was done rather quickly, without any data loss.

Extend system partition without reboot on Server 2003/2008

I have a computer running Windows Server 2003, and the C: drive was once configured to have only 50GB. Obviously, it is far from being enough to meet actual demands for data storage. Moreover, I frequently receive Low Disk Space warning. Therefore, I’ve tried to improve the situation by extending C: drive with Diskpart command and Disk Management. However, both of them failed. I really need partition extension, but I do not want to restart my Server and shutting down services. Thus, I wonder if there is any way to securely extend system partition without reboot on Server 2003.
 

Necessity for System Partition Expansion

To ensure flexible running of the whole machine, users had better leave a minimum amount of available disk space on the system drive. Generally speaking, to gain optimal performance on Windows, 200 MB threshold is a must. Once users get the Low Disk Space alert, they are supposed to extend partition. Due to the exact concern that rebooting computer and shutting down application programs and running services may bring unexpected troubles, most users dare not randomly use partition management software. Here, we humbly recommend users to try professional server partition magic named MiniTool Partition Wizard with comprehensive functions, wide compatibility and high operability. The software applies to both PCs and Server users.
