Are you asking for a utility to partition your hard drive? Is the format of that hard drive NTFS?

It is not hard to resize the server partition. Just shrink other partitions to be smaller and expand the OS partition with the unallocated space. But before any operation on a server, you'd better backup the files.
How to repartition server, you may refer this article for detailed instruction.

BTW, the Easus partition software works well. Follow instructions and you should have no problems.

You could also just combine partitions by converting them to a dynamic disk/volume. That is the primary reason for dynamic disks/volumes to exist. Look at the link below for more on that topic.

But - if not too late... first back up - as in copy off to optical-media - anything you don't want to lose - before tweaking partitions. Just in-case something goes amiss...?

Maybe make a total restorable image too of the drive as is; as that way you can always restore that if things really go pear-shaped?

There are two huge disadvantages of dynamic disk, 1, you cannot convert dynamic disk back to basic without data loss; 2. if bhaji_tej002 needs to resize the partition and make the system partition to be bigger, after converting to dynamic disk, you still cannot expand the system volume, as system/boot volume, Mirror/Stripe/RAID5 cannot be expanded.
I still recommend backup and resize directly on basic disk.

You are correct on all counts. However, if the use is truly as a server it shouldn't matter as the drive letter may be the only important issue. Backups are paramount in any case and resizing should not even be a consideration.

This thread is helpful. I tried easeus and it works like a charm to resize my 2003 server. I found an useful feature that you can expand the OS partition without reboot. Another famous tool disk director cannot do this.

I asked about the file format because FAT32 doesn't support dynamic disks/volumes.
