Not-so-virtual volumes extension in Windows Server 2003

poniedziałek, Lipiec 4th, 2011

Trying to extend a partition under Windows Server 2003, I kept on forgetting how it goes and so I had to have a look back for instructions. So I’ll have it here to remember:

  1. diskpart.exe
  2. list volumes
  3. select volume # (change # with your volume that you checked in point 2)
  4. extend

Just make sure you’ve got enough space on the disk :)

Longer version here. In Windows Server 2008 it’s a piece of cake. I’ve heard you can use the mmc to extend a volume remotely from Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 on Windows Server 2003. Has anyone tried?
