Even though I am running Windows Server 2008 and I have shrunk D: to release some unallocated space as people suggested, I have no idea about taking further extending operation. What's worse, the low disk space alert always pops up to remind me the high risk…"

There are many similar problems about the system partition low disk space. The improper distribution at the first time or the increased program installations during the daily works both leads the above common issues. Server 2008 Local Disk Management can resize but can not move the location at all, that's why made the users unsatisfied like the above user.

Search the solution on Google, the similar problems each came with the similar methods. Today, we present the most directly and effective solution focuses on such issues here.

Before the step-by-step procedure, we recommend the reliable & versatile server partition manager first — AOMEI Partition Assistant Server Edition, which is regarded as the right assistant after server users experience its highly working level. Furthermore, AOMEI Technology always tries to develop it as attractive & practical & helpful partition manager as possible.

  3. Shrink the D: into our ideal size, then, the allocated space is released. If you still confuse the unallocated space's location, then we'd like to tell you that no need to worry about it at all. Then, we exchange the locations between D: drive and unallocated space. Drag the D: to right as following do. This is the breakthrough Partition Assistant transcends the DM limitation.

  4. After the 3rd step, we can directly drag the C: drive to right, then the unallocated space added to the C:

    Add the unallocated space to C: drive

  5. If we have no other special needs like hide/unhide the partitions, etc, we can previewed the above jobs at the left lower sidebar—"Pending Operation" box and commit the changes by clicking "Apply" at the toolbar. Any step is wrong, the other hot buttons "Discard", "Undo", and "Redo" at the toolbar can be used for cancelling or correcting the changes.

So, no matter the dissatisfactory made before or the daily necessary works lead the improper partitions size, now, we readjust them successfully. C: drive is enlarged by making full use of the empty D: drive. We do not believe you will still complain "What do I do…" after do as above.
