A comprehensive tool to resize partition on Windows Server operating systems

Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012 are common Server operating systems. All of them have defects in partition management. For example, resizing partition may fail if we use disk management tool. We'll make a comparison.

Disk management tool of Windows Server 2003

The above is the main interface of Windows Server 2003 disk management tool. We can see its basic partition management functions such as Format Local Drive, Delete Local Drive and Change Drive Letter. It has no functions to resize partition or carry out other partition management operations. We can not use it to manage partition on Windows Server 2003 well.

Disk management tools of Windows Server 2008 and 2012

The above picture shows the main interface of the disk management tool of Windows Server 2008. Although users can use "Extend Volume" and "Shrink Volume" functions to resize partition on Windows Server 2008, the functions are not always available. If there is no allocated space or the allocated space is not next to the target partition, "Extend Volume" function will be unavailable. And Windows Server 2012 disk management tool also has this defect. They are not the best tool to resize partition on Windows Server operating systems.

Professional server partition software
The professional partition software downloaded from http://www.partitionwizard.com/  is comprehensive. We can see its main interface after launching it.

Select any partition and we can see many partition management functions under "Operations" column. Users can use it to resize partition on Windows Server operating systems easily. The four functions, "Extend Partition", "Split Partition", "Move/Resize Partition" and "Merge Partition" can help users resize partition according to different demands. More than that, users can also use this server partition magic to delete partition, format partition, copy partition, wipe partition and so on.  If users want to carry out fine partition management on Windows Server, this server partition software is the best assistant. It is more powerful than the disk management tools of all Windows operating systems.
