GParted was a good choice for Windows 2003 Server
Many Windows 2003 Server users will come to this situation: partitions space become smaller and smaller as time passed, especially the C: partition. So they want to resize the partition. Some people turn to professional partition tools, but they are too expensive and cann’t afford it. Some geeks like free things. GParted for Windows 2003 Server is a good choice because it works well on it.
GParted(Gnome Partition Editor) is an open-source program that can modify your partitions without losing data most of the time. It works great with RAID and NTFS partitions. However, because it is free, so you use it at your own risk. Therefore, it’s important that you create a good backup before you try GParted. Failure during repartitioning could cripple a server or workstation.
As I mentioned above, some geeks like GParted. However, to use GParted, you must first download the CD Image file (.iso file) of GParted Live for this program. What’s more, it’s not as easy to use as some commercial solutions, not everyone are geeks. And it needs spend lots of time to learn how to use. Another reason I gave up GParted is that Windows doesn’t really like GParted because it’ll require a repair action from the Windows disk management sometimes, this conclusion is made through multiple tests.
