If you still think the always pop-up-alert in Windows Server 2000/2003/2008 about low disk space will puzzle you, you are absolutely wrong. Instead of reinstalling the Windows Server OSs, one of server partition software, AOMEI Partition Assistant Server Edition, helps server users extend server system partitions with the readjust the improper partition distribution method.

We take Windows Server 2008 for instance as its built-in Disk Management was put the Resize Partitions function. Once the system C: drive running out of space; we can easily through Server 2008 DM to shrink the next D: partition which is larger enough to release unallocated space for extending C: system drive. Take the operation into practice, we will find that the unallocated space can not be added to the C: system partition as the unallocated space is located far behind D: partition. What's worse, Server 2008 DM does not support move feature.

So, based on the limitation Server 2008 DM given, next, we use AOMEI Partition Assistant Server Edition to move the unallocated space behind the C: system drive and realize the increase the size of system partition server with unallocated space.

  1. AOMEI Partition Assistant Server Edition can be directly launched after installing it. And entire disks/partitions info also will be directly laid out as well as the unallocated space info like following shows:

  2. We start changing the unallocated space's location. Click D: partition, position the mouse pointer on D: partition and drag rightwards.

    Drag D: to change unallocated space's location

  3. Successfully change the location. Then drag the system partition C: drive rightwards to occupy the unallocated space.

  4. The above preparations can be previewed for checking correctness at the lower left corner---"Pending Operations" box. No matter which step is wrong, the toolbar's key bottoms –"Undo", "Redo" and "Discard" can be used for cancelling the changes.

So, the unallocated space is increased to the C: partition, if the system partition running out of space again next time, use the same method to solve it. Furthermore, the allocated space also can be released by shrinking other partitions and then added to system partition. Now, free download the demo to have a try yourselves!
