Recently I encounter a server 2003 user who need help to resize c drive (expand the c drive) in Windows server 2003. Do you happen to encounter the same situation? Let’s see what the problem is and the solution.

Question: Hi All, Anyone knows good software to resize C: of Windows Server 2003 Currently I have 3 disks on my server, running Raid, All I see is 5 partitions combine into one big disk space.

  • C:\ 10GB
  • F:\ 12GB
  • G:\ 12GB
  • H:\ 12GB
  • I:\ 9GB

Current OS: Windows Server 2003 Standard. I need to expand C:\ of the Windows Server 2003 as there are more and more updates. I plan to purchase 2 HDD of the same size of the original 3 HDD, but how can I merge it to the C:\ partition? Partition Magic is out of the question as it does not support Server OS. Anyone have good solutions for me? Thank you!
