Can Partition Magic or Volume Manager resize server partitions?

As we know disk is used for data storage, and it is partitioned for better storage management. That's why we have partitions. We need some partition to store system and stuff necessary for keeping the computer running. And some partitions for personal files, some partitions for working files…

You may have heard about or used Partition Magic or Volume Manager before. And you may be wondering can Partition Magic work on Windows Server Operating System or Volume Manager works on Windows Server 2003 and above. Here we would like to clarify that Partition Magic and Volume Manager were once gorgeous partition software developed by Powerquest, ever since Powerquest was acquired by Symantec, none of the two products have been updated.

The truth is Partition Magic was developed for Windows desktop users on Windows 2000/XP. Partition Magic does not support any Windows Server Operating System. As to Volume Manager, it supports Windows NT Server, 2000 Server and no more. So Volume Manager does not support Windows Server 2003 and 2008.
