    Extending C Partition on Win 2K server

    Locked

    by mburke ·

    I recently noticed that my Win 2k server which was upgraded from NT4 has a primary partition that is too small. How can I increase it’s size.

    I am not keen on a reformat etc

      Unfortunately, boot or system volumes cannot be extended using Windows 2000 GUI or DiskPart tools.
      Normal Simple Data volumes can be exteneded.

      You need third party software such as Partition Magic or Server Magic or equivalent from

      Being a server partition magic will not do it-
      You need a partition utility that works with 2kServer. I use either Volume Manger or
      Acronis Disk Director Suite 9.0

      I recently purchased and began using the Acronis Disk Director Suite 9.0

      It is fairly inexpensive and works just as well as the Powerquest products.

      You can pay online and download immediately- 10 minutes later you are setup good to go- faster than a trip to the store and back.
