To every computer, every partition in disk has different usage,
such as partition C is mainly used to install OS or other important application, and
other partition could be stored some files. With computer is used, the space of every
partition will be different. Some partition left huge space, but others could have a
little space to use. The obvious influence of this situation is nothing more than
computer’s running speed. As system partition’s space becomes low, the speed of computer
running will be slow. It is necessary to solve problem about imbalance in unused space
How to solve the imbalance in usage space of partition
When you encounter such situation mentioned above, what would you do. Actually, there
are many ways to solve it.
To buy a external hard disk to store data and files: this way can release
partition from overloading of data and files, and you can back up the data and
files in partition for security.
To repartition hard disk: you can format and delete all partition and change it
into the unallocated space. then repartition hard disk. In this way, the
computer will be clear but the precondition is you have to backup all data and
files in hard disk.
To reallocate space of hard disk: you can reallocate space of every partition,
such as move free space between different partition.
Comparing with the methods mentioned above, you will find the first method and
the third method are better. However, the first method will cost you lots of money and
time. You have to buy a external hard disk and spend clone data and file from computer
to external hard disk. So, the third method “move free space between partition” is good
Move free disk space between server partitions
To Windows Server, moving free disk space is not bad way to solve problem about
imbalance in unused space of partitions. Windows Server is used by enterprise or
associations. Moving free disk space can protect important data and files from
leaking or loss. We can move free disk space between Server partitions with two
methods---disk management in Windows Server or a third party software.
In disk management in Window Server, as “Extend Volume” only can extend partition to
free space besides partition on right. For example, if we want to move free disk
space from partition D to partition C, we have to delete the partition D, because we
can’t split an unallocated space from partition D to its left side that is partition
C’s right side. The only way is to copy all data and files from partition D to
external hard disk, and delete partition D. as thus, we move free space between
partition C and D. that’s is very stupid way.
Although we can’t make it in disk management, there is third-party software to be
used. AOMEI Partition Assistant offers many wizards to move free disk partition. We
can operate it without any computer professional knowledge. Comparing with disk
management, we can move space in the intuitive environment, but not operate it only
by adjust number.
There have some wizards to move free space in AOMEI Partition Assistant:
Allocate Free Space: we can split free space from one partition to other one by
Split Partition & Merge PartitionS: this wizard’s
rationale is similar to “Allocate Free Space”. The difference between them is
that the process of moving free space is divided into two steps. We can split
free space from one partition by “Split Space” this wizard, and then, you can
merge free space to other partition by “Merge Partitions” this wizard.
Move free disk space between Server partitions with AOMEI Partition
As mentioned above, we can try any way to allocate free space. Of course, we can find
other ways if we are acquainted with this software. Here is step-by-step guide to
move free disk space between server partitions by “Allocate Free Space” wizard in
AOMEI Partition Assistant.
Step 1: install and launch AOMEI Partition Assistant Server Edition. This edition
support Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012 R2, 2016, 2019 and SBS 2003, 2008, 2011. There are other
editions produced by AOMEI technology. Right click the partition that has much free
space, and select “Allocate Free Space”.
Step2: As a result of step 1, you will get a pop-up window. Type
the size of the free space which you want to cut from partition D and this free space
will be directly added into the destination partition. (Take the following screenshot as
an example - I will allocate 83.53 GB’s free space from partition D to partition C.)
Step 3: Click Apply to execute this operation.
Don’t you think this steps above are so easy and simple to learn, if you want
your system partition to get free space and accelerate the speed of computer running,
you can try AOMEI Partition Assistant this software.
