I used to have 1.5 GB free space on drive C: before, but something has taken up the space. Therefore, I cleared cookies and cache files. Moreover, I desperately found that I could not get more free space by uninstalling programs, for those programs in the drive are must-have. Thus, I decided to extend drive C: in my Windows Server 2003 computer. But there is no contiguous unallocated space neighboring to the partition to be extended. What can I do?
