Disk management tool and command prompt tool of Windows Server 2003
The above is the main interface of disk management tool of Windows Server 2003. From the picture, we can see the tool only has a few partition management functions including Change Drive Letter, Format function,
Delete Logical Drive, etc. It is unable
to resize server 2003 partitions.
Then what should we do if resizing partition is needed? Some users may consider using command prompt tool. But the operations are complicated, as follows.
1. Click "Start" button.
2. Click "Command Prompt" function.
3. Enter "diskpart" command
4. Enter "list volume" (checking partition states).
5. Enter "select volume X" (X represents partition number shown in "###")
6. Enter "extend" command.
Seen from the above, it is not easy to resize partitions for Server 2003 with command prompt tool, either. If ordinary users who are not familiar with computers take this method, they may commit great blunders, which are likely to lead to unnecessary troubles. Actually, users could take advantage of professional Windows partition magic to resize partitions for Server 2003.
