Question: I have a desktop computer which is used primarily for
storing and backing up shared files. It is running Windows 2000 server. When setting up,
I created 2 partitions: 20 GB (system) and 100 GB (Data) and 30GB unallocated space. I
now need to resize partition on Windows 2000 server so that I could increase my system
partition, but its built-in disk management is unable to extend
volume. Anyone has any other suggestions?
Everybody knows that Windows 2000 built-in Disk Management tool has no Extend and
Shrink Volume feature, not to mention extend system partition. So when the hard disk
was partitioned, it will be hard to change the distribution. However, you can resort
to 3thd party software, like Partition Assistant, which can fix all kinds of disk
problems. Here we will take the above question for example to demonstrate how to
resize partition in Windows 2000 with this partition magic server
Step by step instructions to resize Windows 2000 Server partition
Step 1: Launch Partition Assistant server and you'll see all disks and volumes
that connected to your Server and unallocated space and other properties of each
Step 2: Right-click E and select "Resize" from the menu. In the pop-up
window, drag the left border rightwards to shrink it. Then there will be some
unallocated space behind C drive.
Step 3: Right-click C and select "Resize". In the pop-up window, drag the
right border rightwards to extend C drive into the unallocated space.
Step 4: Click "Apply" on the toolbar to proceed.
Form the demonstrations above; you can know it is simple and easy to extend C drive
with this magic software. If there is no unallocated space on the hard drive, you
can even move
space from one partition to another without the need to create unallocated
space by shrink a partition. And you don’t need to format the hard drive and
repartition it again.
