Extend C drive

Hi Server Team,
I want to extend the C drive on my Windows server 2008 R2 server. 
i have currently 4 GB of free space on C drive. The want to install service pack 1 and it needs around 8 GB of space to install.
Can any one help how to increase the C drive partition. Kindly help. 
Is there any windows server technology to increase the drive space. 

Of course, it is possible.
In your case, you have two ways to go:
1). Back up everything important well and add the unallocated space to your C drive in Disk Management, as long as the unallocated space is directly behind your c drive.
2). Add the unallocated space to your drive with a partition resizing tool, such as GParted, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Free, EaseUS Partition Master and more.
Here is a video tutorial that can help you a lot:

  • Extending C: Drive in windows 2012

    We have windows 2012 server, and im trying to increase the C: Drive's disk space. The C: drive is 40 GB and I have only 100 MBs left. There was no available space in that server, so i shrinked another volume in order to create some room.
    every time i try to extend the C: drive space i get the error message "error extending volume size not supported". I was wondering if there is any other way i can extend the disk size. The drives are part of RAID 5 set
    thanks

    All right! Don’t worry! Except extending C drive in Disk Management manually, there is also another easier way for you to go on: a professional partition resizing program.
    Have you known or tried the similar partition resizing program? These resizing tools always can easily help one add enough space to wanted partition without data loss, such as
    IM-Magic Partition Resizer Free,
    GParted
    and
    EaseUS Partition Master, etc..
    Here are some detailed steps for you to extend your C drive successfully:

  • Extending C drive on virtual server

    Hello forum, Please can someone advise if extending C drive in this scenario will require reboot?
    Server = Windows 2008 R2
    Pagefile = system managed
    Platform = VMware
    I will be extending the drive on C drive but not sure if that will require reboot? I have read and experienced that it is not possible in 2003 to extend C drive without moving pagefile to a different drive. Is it the case in 2008 R2 as well?
    I understand this is more like VMware question but I thought of using Microsoft forum. I have only worked with 2000 and 2003 so far. Please help.

    Hi,
    You cannot extend the partition if the system page file is located on the partition. Move the page file to a partition that you do not want to extend. If there is page file located on the 2008 R2 C driver, you also need to move the page file.
    For more detailed information, please refer to the articles below:
    Should the paging file be moved from C: drive?

    I am not 100% what isn't allowed.. but I am assuming you want to spread the backup across the two disks.. internal TC and 6TB external.. this is not possible.. It has to be one or the other. TC has no way to build a raid JBOD or anything else. Nor would you want to as that is the most likely to fail and kill your data.
    Let me add, backing up 6TB over USB on TC.. will be the most excruciating experience of your life.. cf child birth or passing kidney stones.. large ones.. being the male equivalent.

  • Extend C Drive from Another Disk

    Hello,
    I want to extend C drive using un allocated pace from another disk. I have gone through the thread "Extending of C:\ Drive by using un allocated disk space from another volume in Windows Server 2008". But I'm wondering if same can be done on Windows
    Server 2012 R2 ?
    Is there any free third party tool available to perform this task ?

    Hi,
    If the unallocated space is adjacent to the drive that you want to merge. You can add more space to the drive by extending them into adjacent unallocated space on the same disk. It is still apply to windows server 2012 R2. 
    For more detailed information, please refer to the thread below:

  • VHD Partitions and extending C Drive

    I have a server 2008 Standard (Not R2) SP2 VM on Hyper-V.
    This VM has a 300 GB VHD which, at the time of setting up the VM, is devided into a 30 GB C drive (OS partition) and 270 GB D drive (Data partition).
    I want to extend C drive by another 30 GB so what I did is to shut down the VM, extend the VHD by 30 GB and restarted the VM.
    I can see these 30 GBs in the "Disk Management" as "unallocated space" but it doesn't let me extend my C drive to this unallocated space no matter what I do.
    For the start, "Extend Volume" is grayed out and diskpart.exe didn't help either.
    The VHD in the "Disk Management" appears as a Basic disk.
    Please help.

    Obviously, the 30GB of unallocated space is not exactly behind this C drive. But, if you insist, you also can take chances with some professional partition resizing tools like GParted, IM-Magic Partition Resizer Free and Active Partition
    Manager and more.
    Of course, you’d better back up everything important well before you begin to resizing your partition in case of unwanted data loss.

    sup guys..i cannot open my owc mercury elite extended hard drive i tried to repair permisions but it sill did not work wat do i do

    It's tough to help you without any information, such as how is it connected. Have you done some fundamentals like checking the cables, disconnecting and reconnecting, SMC resets and  PRAM resets? If not start looking at cables, don't forget to switch them out. If you're not familiar with the resets instructions are below and don't forget to reboot in Safe Mode.
    SMC RESET
    Shut down the computer.
    Unplug the computer's power cord and all peripherals.
    Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    Release the power button.
    Attach the computers power cable.
    Press the power button to turn on the computer.
    PRAM RESET
    Shut down the computer.
    Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    Turn on the computer.
    Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
    Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    Release the keys.

  • Capture Problem (av-1) - Mac OS Extended formatted drives

    I've got a bit of a stumper. I've been trying to capture some video. (I'm backing up all my Hi8 tapes to DVD.) I have no size limit enabled. The time limit is set to 30 minutes. When I finish, FCP stop the capture and creates the capture files. I have one 4.1GB file (Untitled) with the movie and sound and another 780MB file (Untitled-av-1) which is not playable. The movie file plays with quick time and is able to be edited with FCP. But, the other file does nothing. If I delete the second file, the first movie becomes unplayable and uneditable in FCP.
    I searched this issue. I do not have Norton AV or any virus protection software. All my drives are formatted MacOS extended.
    I don't know why else this extra file is there? Anybody know? I've captured files before and this did not happen. Strangely it's happening now.

    Well, you did mention...
    so I don't understand why it's (apparently) running into a problem peculiar to FAT32-formatted drives
    I kind of had to assume at that point the source drive was the one you formatted as Mac OS Extended two years ago, and the target drive was FAT32. If not, then I'm not sure why you mentioned FAT32 at all.
    In that same thinking, error code 0 is directly related to FAT formatted drives.

  • Changing Sharing & Permissions on a Mac OS Extended External Drive

    I'm using ChronoSync to back up to 4 external hard drives. Three of them were formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled), while the 4th is not journaled. On the journaled HD's, I can change the privileges for me, staff and everyone in Get Info; I can also check or uncheck "Ignore ownership on this volume" on 2 of them. My Time Machine volume doesn't have the option to ignore ownership. My issue is that changing privileges on the Mac OS Extended volume is grayed out, and the box to ignore ownership is checked. Therefore, Chronosync cannot write to the volume.
    I could try to use chmod in Terminal to change permissions on this volume, but I don't know the syntax to get to a mounted volume (I know they're listed in /Volumes).
    So I have two questions:
    1. Does this issue indicate a substantial difference between journaled and not-journaled Mac OS file systems?
    2. What is the syntax in Terminal to change the permissions on the volume (name is Video Backup) so that I can at least uncheck the "Ignore ownership on this volume"?
    I apologize if this has been asked and answered elsewhere on this forum, but I wasn't able to locate such a discussion.
    Thanks,
    Nick

    Hi mackjack,
    The commands Niel posted were to regain access to a drive not to change existing permissions. Nonetheless, I executed them so at least I know the syntax to use in order to get to an external hard drive (something I hadn't known before), so thanks!!! I might try chmod 770
    Update:
    Now that I know the basic syntax (thanks to you) I can now change permissions for any user I like. Chronosync is able to synchronize to the drive.
    Thanks!!

  • Mac OS extended journaled drive cannot be written to

    I have two WD MyBook external drives that are formatted Mac OS extended journaled. Permissions are set for owner to write to the drive. I am the owner. Carbon Copy Cloner and Time Machine write to the drives regularly. When I attempt to copy a file to the drive a small window opens telling me "The item is not writeable. You do not have sufficient permissions to write to the item."
    Any help in understand what's going on here would be greatly appreciated.

    Try trash the com.apple.iPhoto.plist file from the HD/Users/ Your Name / library / preferences folder.
    (On 10.7 or later: Hold the option (or alt) key while clicking on the Go menu in Finder to access the User Library)
    (Remember you'll need to reset your User options afterwards. These include minor settings like the window colour and so on. Note: If you've moved your library you'll need to point iPhoto at it again.)
    What's the plist file?
    For new users: Every application on your Mac has an accompanying plist file. It records certain User choices. For instance, in your favourite Word Processor it remembers your choice of Default Font, on your Web Browser is remembers things like your choice of Home Page. It even recalls what windows you had open last if your app allows you to pick up from where you left off last. The iPhoto plist file remembers things like the location of the Library, your choice of background colour, whether you are running a Referenced or Managed Library, what preferences you have for autosplitting events and so on. Trashing the plist file forces the app to generate a new one on the next launch, and this restores things to the Factory Defaults. Hence, if you've changed any of these things you'll need to reset them. If you haven't, then no bother. Trashing the plist file is Mac troubleshooting 101.
    Then try select it again.

  • Error code 0 when copying a large file to a Mac OS Extended formatted drive

    I always back up my photos manually by dragging a folder containing many folders containing many photos into an external drive that I immediately formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) the day I bought it 2 years ago. I now run into a Error Code 0 when I do this. The "mother" folder is 240 GB in size. As I stated, this drive has been formatted for the Mac, so I don't understand why it's (apparently) running into a problem peculiar to FAT32-formatted drives. My iMac has 16 GB of RAM, of which 10 GB was free, the last time I tried to do this.

  • Does Time Machine automatically reformat a non-Mac OS Extended hard drive?

    A friend has just told me something surprising he read in the "Mountain Lion Missing Manual".
    It apparently says that if you connect a FAT or NTFS formatted hard drive to your Mac and startup Time Machine, it will be automatically reformatted to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) by TM.
    Is this true?

    Here is the quote from David Pogue's, "Mountain Lion - The Missing Manual"
    Note: The backup drive must be a standard Mac-formatted hard drive—yet many new drives bought by Mac fans come preformatted as Windows disks. Fortunately, Time Machine automatically reformats them to the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) scheme, which it requires. Thoughtful, really.
    It sounds too good to be true  .  .  .  . .  can anyone confirm it?

    You weren't limited to 32GB unless you chose to do so.
    HFSExplorer can read HFS+
    MacDrive7 can read and write
    Personally would not use FAT and just stick with NTFS.
    Paragon Software has 3 products. To write to NTFS from OS X. To resize partition. Backup software for Windows.

  • How to extend C:\ Drive from D:\ using Command line.

    Hi Friend,
    Need your help for extend 30 GB from D:\ to C:\ Drive using Diskpart cmd.
    My HDD size : 500,
    C:\ Drive : 70 GB (Want round this drive as 100 GB)
    D:\ Drive : 394 GB (Want to increase form here)
    After rounding C:\ as 100 GB want to create D:\ drive from unallocated volume and need to do this migration in Diskpart or in BAT Command line.
    -Thanks

    It is not possible to take space from one volume and add it to another volume on the same drive by using diskpart.cmd or any other Microsoft built in tool.
    There are some third party tools that can achieve the task you describe.
    Anyways, the first step is to take backup of your disk, especially volume D:
    After backing up your data, you could perform following steps.
    Using diskpart, remove partition D:
    Using diskpart, extend volume C: (extend size=30000)
    Using diskpart create partition in the remaining space (create partition primary)
    Assign drive letter D: to the partition created in previous step
    Format volume d:
    Restore data from backup to volume D:

  • How to extend hard drive

    I am just running out of room on my HDD so I was wondering what people think is the best way to extend storage on the iMac? And what hardware do they reccommed and even what type of configuration do they use?  Is there a special system (do I need to use RAID)?
    My thought is to create a new drive for itunes, photos and documents, but I have 2 other uses in the family with their own profile, and I want to know how it all effects them and Time Machine?  Should I look into a SSHD for speed or is their an alternative?
    Well any thoughts would be helpful.

    I would definitely invest in two external hard drives.One for just data storage and for creating another bootable copy of  OS X to run off on if something should happen to the internal hard drive.
    And use the second drive for Time Machine backups only.
    You can use twomof the same capacity storage drives, if you want or your can have the Time Machine backup drive larger if you prefer.
    The easiest way to transfer everything from your internal hard drive to the new external drive is to first format the drive, using OS X Disk Utility. Formatting as an Mac OS X extended journaled format, using the GUID partition scheme.
    Then use a data cloning app such as CarbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper to completely clone your iMac's internal hard drive to the new external drive. This will make a completely bootable external drive.
    Once you are convinced that everything is on the external drive, you can go into iTunes and iPhoto and redirect their libraries via the last part of the instructions I have linked here.
    Then, you can start deleting all of the large folders and  files off of the internal drive and start cleaning it out.
    Here is the link to just properly moving both your iTunes and iPhoto libraries to an external drive.
    If you use the data cloning method, I describe earlier, then you only need to concern yourself with redirecting where both iTunes and iPhoto to the libraries on the new external drive.
    http://mac.tutsplus.com/tutorials/media/how-to-move-your-itunes-iphoto-or-apertu re-library-to-an-external-drive/
    As far as hard drives go, I prefer either FireWire 800 or Thunderbolt ext. hard drives. Especially a fast connect drive for a bootable drive. You do not mention what year, screen size, CPU speed of your iMac. So, it may not have Thunderbolt connections.
    My preferences are for ext. hard drives from OWC (macsales.com). Their Mercury Pro line and Mini stack lines of ext. HDs are great! The Mini stack line leaves a smaller footprint on your tabletop.
    I, also, use Lacie ext hard drives. These are built like a rock, too, and have real good longevity.
    You could use one of these for your second hard drive just for Time Machine.
    Good Luck!
