I’m afraid the link will fail, so reprint this article, the analysis is very thorough and clear at a glance! record.

Windows Servers generally have their own windows disk partition tools, so it is completely unnecessary to use third-party disk partition software. Windows server disk partition generally has three operations: expanding volumes, compressing volumes and creating new simple volumes

If it is your own computer, the manufacturer will generally divide C, D, e, F and other disks when buying, but the server will usually only give you a C disk when buying, which requires you to manually partition the Windows disk.

Expansion volume technology: disk D now has 20g, but the capacity is not enough. I want to expand to 30g

Compressed volume technology: disk D now has 30g, which can not be used now. If you want to build another disk e (10g), you must compress 10g from disk d first

New simple volume technology: if you want to create an e disk, 10g capacity will be added after compression from disk d. This 10g is currently unallocated. If you want to create an e disk, you need to create a new simple volume

Take windows 2008 as an example:

Open the Windows disk partition management interface:

Compressed volume of Windows disk partition

As shown in the figure above, there is only one C disk 40g. Although there is one D disk, it is about 81m small, which can be understood as an optical drive.

Now there is only one C disk. If the data is saved in the C disk, once the system is reinstalled, the data in the C disk will be deleted, and the C disk is where the system exists. What should I do if the Internet accidentally deletes a system file, resulting in the failure of the system to start? In addition, some software can only be installed in the D disk, such as the Western assistant (used to create a website). So now I want to divide a D disk

Right click Disk C and click compressed volume

Wait a moment and the following figure will appear. Enter the capacity of disk d to be created in the red box in the figure. For example, 25000m is equivalent to about 25g. Click compression (1024m = 1g), but for the convenience of calculation, we usually calculate 1g = 1000m. It doesn’t matter whether it is more or less. Disk C has a total of 40g, but a system (about 8G) has been installed in it Therefore, the available capacity is 32006m, i.e. about 32g, but in order to ensure the normal operation of the system, Disk C retains about 15g)

After a while, about 25g of space will be compressed

New simple volume for Windows disk partition

However, the space compressed in the above figure is in the unallocated state. To create a D disk, you must create a new simple volume. However, as shown in the above figure, there is already a D disk, so you can only change the current “D disk” to another disk, such as H disk.

Right click disk d to change the drive letter and path

After the prompt box pops up, click change, allocate disk h, and click OK

As shown in the figure below, change the original disk d to disk h, then create disk D, right-click unallocated space, and create a new simple volume

Enter the size of disk d to be created in the Windows disk partition. If you want to divide 24999m into disk D, don’t worry. Click next. If there is not so much disk D, for example, disk D needs 20000m, fill 20000 in the input box below, and then go to the next step

As shown in the figure below, change to the configuration in the figure. Next

The following interface may appear. Change to the configuration in the figure. Click start. If the figure does not appear, skip directly

Windows disk partition this is the whole process of creating disk D

Extended volume of Windows partition

However, after compressing the volume, I regret that I want to put back the compressed space, which requires the operation of expanding the volume

As shown in the figure below, there are two unallocated spaces a and B, which can only explain one case. A is separated from disk C and B is separated from disk D. And C can only fuse a and D can only fuse B

Now merge B into disk D and expand disk D. right click disk d to expand the volume

As can be seen from the figure below, the maximum selected space is 5000m, that is, about 5g is the capacity of B’s unallocated space, that is, disk D can only integrate B. If you want to integrate all B into D, go to the next step directly

So we’ll merge B into disc D

As shown in the figure below, there are now disks C and D, but you don’t want disk D. if you want to put all of them in Disk C, you should delete disk d first and partition Windows disk

Right click disk D and delete the volume (do not select Format)

If there is data in disk D, backup it first. If there is no data in disk D, select “yes”

After disk D is deleted, it will become unallocated, which is easy to do. As mentioned above

Sometimes, when we open “my computer”, we will find that there is only one C disk in it, and the capacity is not enough. It is not the capacity agreed when buying the server. Don’t worry. At this time, you should open the Windows disk partition interface, as shown in the figure above. There must be an unallocated space waiting for you
