Tagged: Extend Partition
November 15, 2018 at 1:30 am #606835
We are using Windows Server 2008 R2 Std Edition, IBM X3400 Server. Now we want to extend the c: drive partition size as the space in E: drive is available. Now if I click on the c: drive i can only see the shrink options while if i click on the other partitions i can extend and shrink both. I even shrink the partition from e drive but still not able to extend. I even install some third party tools to extend the size but all are asking for the key to extend..My partition are basic partitions. Do I have to convert it in to the extended partition only ?
I am attaching the screenshot for the detail information
Can someone help..

You should be able to extend however when you shrink the E:\ it removes the space from the end of the partition and as such you can’t extend the C:\ using this as the spaces need to be contiguous.

IIRC you will need to convert the disk to Dynamic first
Before you do so, research the implications of Dynamic vs Basic disks, and also of extending a volume into non-contiguous free spaceNovember 16, 2018 at 8:26 am #607064
Thank you for the quick reply..
So, is it possible move those 10 GB allocated area in to the contiguous area..and if I convert the disk to the dynamic , will it disturb my OS.
Also, how can I upload the screenshot jpg file here..
