I have inherited a problem on an SBS 2003 server where the primary partition holding the OS is running out of space. The hard drive is partitioned as C: holding the OS and any vital apps and D: holding nothing but data. I have plenty of space to rob from the D: partition. My problem is there is very little money to purchase a product like Acronis. Are there any safe and free (or inexpensive) alternatives?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There is no free partition software for Windows Server, but there are some ones that are cheaper than Acronis, for example, partition master, partition magic server, partition assistant, etc.

Anyway, you’d better backup your system before any operations on the Server.

    I found a product that looks promising. I have the Demo version, but have not actually resized yet. EaseUS Partition Master Server Edition. The client version has received very good reviews. www.easeus.com

    Symantec/Peter Norton no longer supports or sells Partion Magic. EaseUS looks like a pretty good product for what you are attempting.
