Being experienced or not, computer users may have come across partition resizing issues. Here is an example, I bought a new laptop days ago, but I overlooked partitioning process when the vendor helped me configure operating system. Then, I found that the hard disk drive in the computer was split into two parts: system/boot partition – C drive and data partition-D drive. The C drive has only 50 GB. After installing indispensable programs and applications, there is little unused space left in this partition. Thus, I intend to resize partition to meet subsequent data storage demands. Where can I download the best software to change partition size in Windows Server 2008?
It seems that the majority of computer users have suffered from the mentioned situations, but how to dispose such issues is a burning concern. Some users propose using Windows Server 2008 built-in Disk Management snap-in supporting partitioning operations such as partition creating, partition deleting, partition formatting, basic disk converting, partition extending and partition shrinking. However, those functions are defective. The delete command can only delete partitions except system one, while the shrink command can shrink NTFS partitions backward only. How about Extend Volume feature? It works only when the precondition that there must be unallocated space right behind target NTFS partition is met.
