As we all know, the Disk Management in Windows Server 2000, 2003
does not have the function of extending or shrinking partition. But the fact is
administrators often need to do such operations when managing the disk. So in order to
meet users' needs, more features are added to Disk Management in the subsequent servers,
like Server 2008.
In Windows 2008, we can resize volume successfully without any other external tools
except for the built-in Disk Management. But it is a pity that the resizing can be
realized only when the unallocated space is right adjacent to the target one. What's
worse, it can not move a partition, either. That means if there is no volume right
behind the one we want to resize, we will go to a dead corner unless by virtue of
some software, such as Partition Magic. However, this excellent tool also has its
limitation that it can not run in server edition and stops to promote after being
acquired by Symantec. Nonetheless, today you can still manage your disk very well by
using the free partition magic server edition.
