Problem description: I have a Windows Server 2008 with dynamic disk. And I stored lots of applications on the C drive. Recently, however, I could not store application on it since there is no free space. At this time, I want to extend server C drive on dynamic to fix this problem. Thus, who can help me to complete this task without influencing the original data?
In fact, there are two tools (Windows built-in disk management tool and third-party software) to resize dynamic volume. However, disk management tool has great limitations. For instance, if the selected volume users would like to extend is mirrored volume or stripped volume, users cannot extend it. Aiming at this situation, we strongly suggest partition magic software. And MiniTool Partition Wizard is the best partition magic server. It can work well to almost all Windows operating systems, including Windows Server 2000/ 2003/2008/2012, Windows 7/8, and Windows XP/Vista.
Users need to download the partition management software at first, and then install it on computer, and launch it to open its main interface like this.
In the main interface, users can see all volumes on this dynamic disk and some detailed information about them. Here, to extend C drive, users need to select the C drive at first, and then click “Move/Resize” button on the toolbar or “Move/Resize Volume” from Operations group of the action panel. After that, users can see a dialog box.
In the pop-up window, users can lengthen the volume handle to extend the selected volume. Note: if there is no unallocated space neighboring to the target volume which needs extending, users need to shrink the adjacent volume to get unallocated space at first, and then extend C volume. After that, click “OK” button to go back to the main interface.
In this main interface, users can see the C volume has increased from 8.4 GB to 24.6 GB. At this time, click “Apply” button on the left to execute all changes to computer. Thus, users are successful to extend server C drive on dynamic without bringing any damage to the original data by using the best partition magic server.
If you encounter the low dynamic disk space problem, hurry to download MiniTool Partition Wizard. It can easily, quickly and safely fix this problem without data loss.
