"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 D: Drive in VM 2003 Server R2

Problem description: Recently, I had a disk space issue on my Windows 2003 Server R2 virtual machine. To be specific, the D: drive is running out of space. Thus, I really need to extend D: drive in VM 2003 Server R2 immediately. Can I turn to Windows built-in disk management tool?




Answer: although the Windows 2003 server R2 disk management tool provides some basic functions to manage partitions, its functionality is limited and it cannot resize partition (illustrated above). At this time, you can turn to partition magic software.
