System volume drive C full - need to extend - can you recommend a suitable software solution?

System volume drive C full - need to extend - can you recommend a suitable software solution?

(OP)
Unfortunately the C drive on my server has almost run our of space.

I have shrunk the D drive by 71GB, however the Windows 2008 server disk management software does not permit me to extend the C volume.

Can anyone recommend an alternative (GUI) solution?

Best regards

Acronis, Paragon, ect allow partition manipulation creating contiguous space. Windows will not allow it due to contiguous space occupied by the D: partition. Some third party partition software will. Do a backup first, never had an issue but there is always a first time.

If you are looking for a free solution that works, check out GParted.

I hope that helps.
