Paragon's Migration Suite for Servers. It should be able to remove the 2TB limit per partition if that is your need:

typically I use Acronis to do my advanced disk cloning or expanding work.

There is only one version that works with servers.  They call it Backup and recovery for Windows servers.  It's a bit pricey but it has always worked well for me.
