Moving Files from C Drive to D Drive on Server 2003

When you find the C: drive is full while the D: drive is still empty on your PC, what will you do if you want to free space on C: drive? I am just a home computer user rather than a computer technician, so the first thought on my mind is to move files from C: drive to D: drive. However, it is not as easy as what I think. While trying to move files, I nearly delete some important data due to mistake. When files have been moved to D: drive, I found some programs are unable to be run while the system says that the location of the program doesn’t exist. So I need to move files back to C: drive again, which waste me a lot of time.

Extend C: Drive Instead of Moving Files

In order to find a way to free C: drive space, I have posted my questions on several forums. Finally, I find that I need to extend C: drive rather than moving or deleting any data. Learned that an unallocated disk space is required for extending C: drive, D: drive is just available since it is still empty. Everything is ok, now I just need a partition magic to perform C: drive resizing. I use partition software Server to resize C: drive on my computer, since the OS on my computer is Server 2003.

How Do I Extend C: Drive on Server 2003?
Step1. I free download the partition software Server, install and run it on my computer. Right click D: drive and select "Resize/Move" option.
Step2. Shrink D: drive to create an unallocated disk space.
Step3. Right click C: drive and select "Resize/Move" option.
Step4. Move arrow to extend C: drive.
Step5. Click "Apply" button.

Why Opt for Partition Software Server?
Firstly, partition software Server is professional disk partition resizing tool for Server computer. Many partition magic programs only work on Windows PC like Windows XP/Vista/7. For Windows Server users, it is difficult for them to find a useful and reliable partition tool. In addition, partition software Server is totally safe to protect data from being deleted in resizing process. It is also safe for the Server system. Further more, partition software Server allows users to extend partition, shrink partition and move partition, which ignore those unnecessary functions such as format partition, delete partition, etc because Windows OS itself offers those functions.

2. Well, the C drive on my Windows Server 2003 is nearly full. Recently, I found that my computer runs more and more slowly.
