Windows Server Extend Boot Volume – Reallocate Disk Space to Extend Boot Partition on Server

Do you know what boot partition is on your Server? What if boot partition is running out of disk space? Are you wondering if boot partition can be extended? This article will introduce a partition magic for you to extend boot partition on Windows Server.

Partition Software for Boot Volume Resizing on Server
In most case, boot volume also refers to C partition. If you want to extend boot volume on Windows Server, partition software Server is a good choice. Partition software Server enables you to extend boot volume when C drive is lacking of free disk space. This partition software can also help with shrink disk partition and move partition. Compared with other similar partition software, partition software Server has the function of resizing disk partition without rebooting your computer or reinstalling system.

Steps to Extend Boot Volume on Server
Step1. Download, install and run partition software Server. Right click a partition that has enough free space and choose "Resize/Move".
Step2. Move the arrow to shrink the selected partition to squeeze some unallocated space.
Step3. You need to move the unallocated space if it is not adjacent to the boot volume. After moving the unallocated space close to boot volume, you can right click the boot volume and choose "Resize/Move".
Step4. Move the arrow to extend boot volume and click "Resize/Move" button.

Compatibility of Partition Software Server
Partition software Server is professional Server partition software, so it can work on almost all Windows Server OS which include Windows Server 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows SBS 2003, Windows SBS 2008, Windows SBS 2011, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2, SBS 2003 R2 and more. As professional partition software, partition software Server can also be compatible with all kinds of hard disks such as Seagate, Hitachi, Samsung, Western Digital, Maxtor, Toshiba, etc.

Reallocate Space without Repartitioning
When referring to reallocating disk space, most people will think to repartition the hard disk. However, with partition software Server, you are able to reallocate disk space without repartitioning hard disk. Instead, you just need to shrink a partition that has enough free disk space to squeeze some unallocated space, and then you can add the unallocated space to the partition you want to extend. When the boot volume is lacking of disk space, partition software Server allows you extend the partition without any data loss.

Related Cases
1. I have windows Server 2003 with C drive and D drive on my computer. The C drive is nearly full, so I have about 50GB unallocated space behind D drive. However, when I try to extend C drive, I receive a message like "The volume you have selected cannot be extended". Can you tell me what is wrong with it? How can I add the free space to C drive?

2. I have three drives (C drive, D drive and E drive) on my computer that is running Windows Server 2008 operating system. The problem is that C drive only has about 2GB free space, so I shrink E drive by selecting "Shrink Volumes" option to produce some free space. However, when I right click C drive to add the free space to it, the "Extend Volumes" option is disabled. Somebody told me that I need to move the free space close to C drive, but can you tell me how to move the free space? Or can you tell me how can I extend C drive when the free space is behind E drive?
