How to Solve the Problem of “Extend Volume Grayed Out” in Windows Server 2008?

Question: I am a Windows Server 2008 user, and the hard drive of my computer is 120GB, including Drive C 20GB, Drive D 40GB, Drive E 60GB. As time goes on, the system (C) drive nearly runs out of space, but drive E is almost empty. Therefore, I decide to allocate some free space from drive E to extend system volume. As a piece of good news to many Windows users, the built-in Disk Management has been added two new advanced features: shrink and extend volume. So with the help of “shrink volume”, I get an unallocated space from drive E. But unfortunately, the “Extend Volume” option is grayed out. How can I solve this problem?
