Things are always expected to develop better and better, especially the technology. People want them to progress constantly to meet more of their needs. One good example is the frequent change of computer’s functions. In Windows Server 2000 and 2003, users could not resize volumes while in Windows 2008 the built-in Disk Management can extend or shrink a partition to get out of the embarrassment brought by the irrational allocation of partition.
But it still has a problem that the volume extending only can be executed when there is an unallocated space right behind the target one. What’s worse, you can not move a partition to achieve such a condition only by the Disk Management. That means you will have no way to extend the partition except deleting some particular one or reinstalling the system. Actually that is not advisable considering the risk of losing data and inconvenience of back-up. Therefore, the third party software – Partition Magic for Windows Server 2008 comes to help users.
