Creating server space

I have a server with WinSvr 2003 and running of space on my "C" drive.  When the server was configured, it was configured with only 12GB of space.  I am running out of space on the "C" drive and would like to extend the drive from available space that is not being used without losing any data on the "C" drive.  Please take a look at my attachment for more details.

Your attachment is missing...

12 GB should be enough for the system partition on a 2003 server. Instead of trying to make that partition larger you should move stuff to another drive and remove unneeded files from C. to do that follow leew's instructions (one off EE's top experts) from his site where he explains how C on a windows 2003 server is properly managed:


thanks, i noticed.  I've tried to attach a .pdf and .docx file and the expert exchange attachment software hangs
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

i agree with 12GB space should be enough for system partition, however, i've cleaned up all unneeded files that is not related to system files and only 1.6gb of space remainig.

Thanks, it looks fairly simple and streight forward.

Did you really follow all of leew's instructions? There probably is more you can move or remove...
