There always exist some big partitions as well as small ones in our computer. If Server 2008 users want to make use of a certain small partition, they may plan to extend partition size in Server 2008. Then, users may look for a good way in order to extend volume smoothly. Surely, Disk Management – Windows built-in small tool is a good choice to increase partition size.
In addition to using Disk Management, here we suggest users that they should extend partition size in Server 2008 with the help of partition magic – MiniTool Partition Wizard. This is a practical third party tool for users to increase partition size with ease. Now, we will tell users how to extend volume in Windows Server 2008 by using Disk Management and partition magic.
Note: Users had better make an important data backup in advance, because the following operations may cause data loss.
Step 1, after users entered the interface of “Server Management” in Windows Server 2008, they can see the disk list. And then, users need to right click the certain partition that they want to extend and select “Extend Volume” in the pop-up window.
Step 2, users can click “Next” in the pop-up window of “Extend Volume Wizard” to continue.
Step 3, users should input the certain value to determine how much size they want to extend.
Step 4, users need to click “Finish” to start the pending operation.
Step 1: users need to choose a target partition in the main interface of MiniTool Partition Wizard first.
Step 2: they can click “Partition” in the menu bar and select “Extend”.
Step 3: in the pop-up small window, users need to determine where they want to take free space (they can choose to take free space from both unallocated space and other partitions) and drag the sliding button to decide how much free space to take. Then, they can click “OK”.
Step 4: users should click “Apply” in the main interface of this software.
Finally, we would like to advise users to get this practical software first if they plan to extend partition size in Server 2008 on their own.
