On April 24, 2003, Microsoft released an operating system—Windows Server 2003, also named Win2K3. Compared with Windows Server 2000, Win2K3 not only persists the predecessor's advantages but also brings more special features. What's more, in order to take-up all benefits of Microsoft .NET and to connect systems, equipments, information and users, its operating system has been strengthened greatly. As a result, Windows Server 2003 could perform much better. It has the characters of safety, practicality, reliability and extendibility. And just because that, more and more companies begin to use it, no matter big or small. It has been a good catch.
However, there is nothing we can say perfect in the world. Win2K3 also has its constraints which mainly reflect on managing hard drive. During using computer, we often encounter such situation as having difficulty in programs updating or installing because of lack of disk space. And what's worse, the built-in Disk Management could not move and resize partition. Then what can we do now? Reinstall Windows Server 2003 system to get more space? Actually, it is a somewhat stupid way, because you will have many works to do like back-up all files or programs. How cumbersome it is! Is there any other choice?
