Windows Server 2008 partition magic software to manage disk partitions

When a Windows Server 2008 partition running out of free disk space, the easiest solution is by resizing partitions. Though shrink and extend volume features added to Server 2008 disk management, you cannot extend system C drive by shrinking a data drive, except you delete the next contiguous partition, so you have to find other tools.

Generally speaking, a 3rd party application is more professional and powerful than Windows built-in utility, when you searching a server partitioning software, you are very likely to hear about Partition Magic. As the first partition utility, Norton Partition Magic is indeed a great application, however, it is not compatible with Windows Server 2003, not to mention Server 2008. Just forget Partition Magic, as Symantec officially stated they no longer offer this program.

Luckily, there is partition magic alternative for Windows Server 2008, such as Acronis Disk director, Aomei Partition Assistant, etc. Acronis has longer history to support Windows Operate Systems and file systems, but it cannot support large hard disk drives, it is also too expensive ($609 for each copy). As the latest partition magic software, Partition Assistant Server is powerful and cost-effective.
