Compared to Windows Server 2000 or 2003, Windows 2008 has much stronger functions on disk management. One of the greatest progresses is that the snap-in Disk Management of Windows 2008 can extend and shrink volume, which makes the management become more flexible and convenient.

However, progress does not mean it will not have defects any more. So does the Server 2008. The extending feature mentioned above is the best example: it can be operated only if there is an unallocated space right behind the target volume. If not, administrators must delete the right contiguous drive or reinstall the system because the Disk Management can not move any unallocated volume to the location we want. Therefore, to move partition in Server 2008 is the first question which needs to be solved. Then how to realize it? AOMEI Partition Assistant Lite Edition, the first free partition software for server can help you to free move partition in Windows 2008 easily and safely.
