Why need a partition magic tool for Windows Server 2008?

Things are always expected to develop better and better, especially the technology. People hope that the technology could develop faster to meet their changing requirements. 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 rid of the irrational allocation of partition.

But it still has a limitation that you can only extend the volume which has been followed by an unallocated space in the right side. What’s worse, you cannot 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, you might need to download partition magic for Windows Server 2008
