Under almost all Windows operating systems, users generally choose to partition hard drive to five partitions – one primary partition and four logical partitions, so do Windows Server 2008 users. When needing to extend partition, most users trend to adopt built-in disk management tool. After starting this utility through "Start" – "Control Panel" – "Management tool" – "Server Manager", users have to gain unallocated space from other partition first, and then make the unallocated space adjacent to the desired partition, and finally extend the desired partition with unallocated space. This is because the disk management tool can only help extend partition when unallocated space exists behind the desired partition. The real operations are more complicated and risky than the description above, so if users want to easily and safely extend partition for Server 2008, please employ professional Server 2008 partition magic.
