Hi, I used Windows Server 2008 and it has a 320G hard drive, C drive needs to be bigger since I get "low disk space" warning. So I would like to make it larger without losing anything or major changes. Can I extend the partition with the free space from other partitions and how to solve the low disk space problem under Windows Server 2008 if possible?
Our disk space has gradually been used up when we continuously install additional Windows updates, service packs and programs on the computer and store almost all files, personal or business on the hard disk. With reference to Microsoft official site: When free disk space on your computer falls below a specific threshold (generally, 200MB free space left on one partition would ensure a good computer performance, while disk space falls under 80 MB, server deliver strong warning message.), you may receive the following message or one similar to it:
For the situation mentioned above, I am sure most of us are not strange with such warning like "low disk space" or "C drive full" whatever operating system you use. As Windows Server 2008 bringing more advanced features in technical, security, management and administrative, it has been widely used by more and more people now.
