Best Partition Tools

One of our mission critical servers is running low on disk space on the system partition (C Drive). I want to know some of the best partitioning tools available for servers. Its a Windows Server 2003 R2.

The C Drive has unallocated space next to it, but since its a system partition I can't extend it.

I know that this is not the answer for your question but until you find the best tool, you could use junction to keep some data on another partition. Works like the sym-links in linux, here is the download from MS technet.

Are u configured RAID for this server? If yes, Then you can't extend the partition
If not - you can use partition magic tool, which will availabe for trail, Also you can not take space from primary partition and if any extended partions space availabe then you can allocate from there, like "d" drive "e" drive

The server is configured for RAID 5. Broken down into 3 logical disks. See below.

Partition Wizard from my first post "MiniTool Partition Wizard supports RAID devices" ...
You can do this since you dont have any extended partition, better use the unpartioned space.
radhakrishnan2007: Please see below, it appears it goes against what you are saying, and looks like it will work with RAID configured systems. Unless I'm misinterpreting something.
