To resize server partition, there are 3 choices for you, select the proper method make server partition resizing easier:

Partition layout

1. "Resize Partition" - manually shrink drive D: to get some free "Unallocate" space and then extend system C: drive with this free space. It is easy to resize server drives in this condition, however, if you want to extend C: by taking free space from G:, it is a bit more complicated. You need to shrink G:, move the free space to the end of drive C: and then extend the system volume.

To resize non-contiguous partitions, there is an easier way.

2. "Allocate Free Space" - you just need to select which drive and specify how much free space to shrink from, and then add the space to system drive without resizing by yourself.

However, in some conditions, there is not enough free space in either drive D: or G:, then what to do? Don't worry, there is still way to resize server partitions. Why not getting free space from both volume D: and G:?

3. "Extend Partition Wizard" - this feature is able to shrink 1, 2 or all data drives at the same time to extend system partition.
