Adding Unallocated Space to Server System Partition

It's an efficient way to add unallocated space to server system partition when system says low disk space is running on local disk C partition, but for server system, extending methods are various. For Windows Server 2003, need to find other program to run disk partition; For Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2012, Disk Management is an optional ways to manage disk space, but there are some limitations on disk management, normal situations will always touch the limitations. So adding unallocated space to Server system partition is a professional job done by particular software.

System Partition Resizing by Adding Unallocated Space

What situations stop disk management work for extending system partition: the unallocated space is not near C partition, it was cut off by other partition in the middle; file system is FAT32, disk management doesn't support it. Adding unallocated space is not that simple to extend system partition if you don't have a tool to move partition or free space.

Partition Extender will extend partition when the unallocated space is not near C Drive, or very far from C Drive. you may asked if it needs to move space from one partition to another; actually , you don't have to move any space on Partition Extender, "extend" is already the whole operation in Partition Extender, it's intelligence on disk map situation (detect where the unallocated space and decide which algorithm to use by itself.)

Yes, it is possible. The complete question you might ask I think is: is it possible to add unallocated space to server system partition when the space is not near to C Drive, or when Extend Volume grayed out when there's only one hard drive on Server.
