Lacking professional knowledge, I regard it hard to partition hard disk under Windows Server 2003. I do not know how many partitions I should create, what kind of format I should specify, and even the capacity of partitions. Without comprehensive guidance, I sized my Windows Server 2003 partitions as follows: system/boot partition – C drive 30 GB, several data partitions D, E, F, G totally 140 GB and the rest part is the unallocated space for 80 GB. As time flies, I suffered from low disk space issues. I desperately need to improve the situation and I restore system. This time, I want to make some breakthroughs, so how to create disk partition in Windows Server 2003 rationally?
Many practical experiences have told us the importance of partitioning hard disk in a reasonable way. Providing that there are too few partitions, it will cause users trouble when it is necessary to sort data, lowering data management flexibility and data security. On the other hand, the more partitions there are, the lower hard disk performance will get. Moreover, the information loading speed will be decreased, for system will load information from every partition when boot. Therefore, reasonable partition distribution plays a crucial role in subsequent data management, system performance and other aspects. In such cases, a piece of disk partitioning software is in dire need. Though there is an inconceivably large amount of such software on market, corresponding performance is hard to identify for most computer users. Once inferior software is used, users may suffer from unexpected troubles. Here, an excellent server partition management tool – MiniTool Partition Wizard is highly recommended for users.
With the help of the software, users can easily perform both basic and advanced partition and disk management operations so as to maximize system performance and optimize information management. It enables users to reasonably create partition according to actual demands. Here, we would like to introduce how to avoid low disk space issue on system partition when users are creating disk partition.
Figuring out the exact practical demands is the first step. After that, download and install the software to proper location. Then, take the following steps:
1. Launch MiniTool Partition Wizard to open its main interface:
2. In the main interface, choose the unallocated space to create new partition and click “Create Partition” from left action panel.
3. In this interface, users are entitled to set partition format, drive letter, file system, cluster size, partition size. To avoid confronting with the mentioned low disk space issue on certain drive, users need to configure it to have more capacity. After settings, click “OK” to go back to main interface of the software.
4. Here, users can see a partition appears in disk mapping area. If it is as expected, users can click “Apply” button to apply it to computer. (However, if a partition is too large, users can also use other features of the software to resize partition, so as to maximize disk space utilization.)
We have demonstrated how to create disk partition for Windows Server 2003 with MiniTool server partition manager. Apart from partition creating, other disk partitioning functions like partition resizing, partition moving, partition merging and partition splitting are also available to users. Hurry to experience the magic of the software here.
