Months ago, I bought a laptop which has been pre-installed with Windows Server 2003 and the vendor configured the system partition – C drive to have only 50 GB and other data partitions are extremely large. Now, I am facing the low disk space issue when I plan to installed a player to C drive. Following the installation steps and storing the files into default destination, I suddenly receive Low Disk Space warning on system partition. To fix the issue, I finally choose to reset destination. However, I know the exact meaning of certain alert, so I urgently need to resize C drive under Windows Server 2003. There is a self-contained Disk Management tool in the system, but I wonder if it can work for me? Or I need to download a piece of server hard disk resize software?
Partition resizing refers to adjust the size of a specified partition according to actual demands, either shrink it or expand it. Users are expected to extend a partition by taking free space form other large-capacity partitions if it runs out of space, while partition shrinking can release some free space. With the help of the two features, users can make better of disk space and optimize system performance.
What if Server 2003 partition runs out of space? Indeed, there is a Disk Management tool available to manage partition, but users have to realize partition resizing in an indirect way. For example, if users need to enlarge system partition, they ought to delete partition at first. Then, recreate partition (reset a larger partition capacity, specify a drive letter, format it with NTFS or whatever). Apart from the energy-consuming process, partition data security is another concern for computer users. Therefore, software for server hard disk resize is in dire need.
