How to repartition Server 2003 disk drive without losing data?

All the size of partitions on Windows Server is carefully allocated while building the Server. However, things are changing and the scheduled size may not always meet your needs, especially for the System partition, as Windows continues to download large updates or any other reasons.

If the System partition is running out of space and struggles for precious unallocated space, you are unable to install new programs, even the whole performance of your computer will be declined, say, the computer goes much slowly.

The old method is, backup the system and files, delete partitions, rebuild the Server. The whole weekend will be wasted, it even leads to data loss when you rebuilding the Server.

Now you can repartition Server 2003 disk drive without deleting or formatting partitions. With Partition Magic Server software, you can split, merge partitions, shrink and extend existing system or data partition without losing data.

Just drag and move on the disk map to repartition Server 2003 disk drives, extremely easy to operate.

Two choices to repartition Server 2003 disk drive

Two choices:

1. You may consider merging the system partition and a data partition directly.

As by merging partitions, you'll loss an existing data partition (though the files will be transfered to another partition when merging partitions), I do not suggest repartition Server 2003 by merging partitions, but if you insist on doing this, please refer how to merge Windows Server 2003 partitions.

2. Shrink the data partition and extend the system partition.

It is also extremely easy to repartition Server 2003 disk drives by resizing partition. You just need to drag and move on the disk map to shrink an existing data partition and get some Unallocated space to extend the system C drive, there is no need to delete, format partition or rebuild the Server.
