In order to realize dynamic disk repartition, shrinking or deleting
the existing volume and then recreate new volume is a common method. However, with the
Windows Server 2003 built-in disk management you could only delete one volume then
recreate new one, shrinking volume is forbidden. In this situation we need
multifunctional dynamic disk management software. AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager is the one that you need.
Repartition dynamic disk is just the basic function of AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager.
Two ways to repartition Dynamic Disk
Repartition dynamic disk by Disk Management
Here we have an example, a
single volume (F :) occupies the whole dynamic disk as below:
to repaire this kind of dynamic disk, because of the volume is non-system volume and non-data in it, we could delete it then recreate a new one without occupy the whole disk. This task could be completed under the Disk Management.
Step 1:Right-click “My computer” -> “Management”-> “Disk Management”
Step 2: Right-click drive F: ->select “Delete volume”. Then you will
find the disk becomes unallocated space and we could repartition it.
Step 3: Right-click unallocated space select “New volume”, it will pop
up a wizard window, just follow the wizard and click “Next”.
Note: When the wizard pop up a window that requires you to set disk size as
You will find the new volume is created as 20866MB (20.38GB), and the rest space
is showed as unallocated space, that means we could create another volume.
If the single volume contains the system data or other important data, the
method above is useless, we can not delete them. In this situation AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager could help us achieve this goal.
Step 1: Launch AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager, right-click the volume
which contains the system data (for example here is drive C : ), select “Shrink
Step 2: In the pop-up window drag the right handle, leftward to shrink
the system volume, click “OK”.
After that you will find an unallocated space is behind the system volume.
Step 3: Right-click the unallocated space, select “Create volume”,
in the pop-up window follows the wizard to compete the operation.
Tips: you could also resize volume, set drive letter, set drive label, file
system and the cluster size during creating new volume.
Step 4: After setting up all the information of the new volume, click
“Commit” on the tool bar to apply the operation.
Note: To shrink system volume, in order to protect the system volume, the
operation will be completed in boot mode, therefore, rebooting is necessary.
the operation complete you will find the dynamic disk is repartitioned successfully and
without reinstall the operation system.
If one dynamic disk contains several dynamic volumes, repartition this kind of
dynamic disk by using AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager will be more easily and safety. You
could use the same way above to achieve the goal (Note: it can work well on Windows
7/8/Vista/XP and Server 2003/2008/2011/2012). Now you could free download
AOMEI Dynamic Disk Manager to try.
