We know that the most common disk types are MBR disk and GPT disk. When users use GPT disk, there is almost no limitation in number and type of partitions. But if users use MBR disk, they can create at most four primary partitions or three primary partitions and one extended partition. At this time, users can’t directly create new partitions by using Windows built-in Disk Management. Then, what should Server 2008 users do when they want more free space? Since creating new partition isn’t so easy to achieve when users have four primary partitions or three primary partitions and one extended partition, they can change partition size for further use.
“Change resize partition” means extending partition, shrinking partition, merging partition and splitting partition. Here we’d like to introduce how to merge partition in Windows Server 2008 in order to solve the above problem. Users may think about using Windows built-in Disk Management to achieve resizing partition size. However, we’d better inform users that merging a partition can’t be realized by using Disk Management.
Since Windows built-in small tool can’t help users merge partition in Windows Server 2008, we’d like to suggest users that they use partition magic to achieve this. Here is a practical partition manager, named MniniTool Partition Wizard, can help users merge partition with ease. Its “Merge Partition” function can help users merge two partitions in order to increase partition size. Even if users have four primary partitions or three primary partitions and one extended partition, they can use this powerful function to successfully change partition size.
When users use MiniTool Partition Wizard to merge partition in Windows Server 2008, they just need to start with choosing a source partition and click “Merge Partition” in the main interface. Then, they can finish all operations according to the prompts of the software.
