Users can extend partition in Windows Server 2003 to solve the problem of short for free space in a certain partition. Generally speaking, disk partition has enough free space when it is formatted and partitioned by professional personnel. But after we use computer for a long time, we may find that free space of some partitions is almost run out. What’s even worse, we still want to store files in these partitions which have a little free space, because we don’t want to save files of the same type separately. At this time, we may want to enlarge partition to get more free space.
However, if we use Windows built-in Disk Management to extend partition in Windows Server 2003, this may result in data loss. So, with regard to data safety, we’d like to suggest users use partition magic, namely MiniTool Partition Wizard to enlarge partition safely.
This partition magic is professional and helpful. It can help users resize partition, merge partition, split partition, enlarge partition and so on. The above operations can be safely performed. And users don’t need to worry about losing data, because MiniTool Partition Wizard has a built-in function to prevent data from losing. This function will be automatically launched as long as users extend partition in Windows Server 2003 with the help of this software.
