Reasons to resize partition in Windows Server 2000

The reasons why you might need to resize a Windows Server 2000 partition can be mainly divided into two parts. On the one hand, when you want to install a second operating system but there is no empty partition, then you can shrink or delete another existing partition to get some free space to create a new partition for the new OS. On the other hand, when you find one of the existing partitions is too big or too small, you might need to resize it to a reasonable size by shrinking or extending the partition.

Generally, Windows Server in-built Disk Management tool supports shrinking and extending volumes. But is it safe to shrink or extend volumes through that tool? Since every partition consists of many clusters and each file may take up several discontinuous clusters, it might affect the stored data on the shrunk or extended volumes.

Thus, most Windows Server users are looking for a better solution to resize partition without damaging data in Windows Server 2000, but is there such a versatile tool? Surely, the AOMEI Partition Assistant Server is a nice choice to safely resize partitions in Windows Server 2003, 2008 (R2), 2012 (R2), 2016, 2019 computers.
