Partition query for W2K server

  recap 14:44 16 Feb 2004

Hi all,

I am running a W2K server and require to partion more than the Windows partioning will allow. What third party software would you recommended for a server?

Will Partion Magic do the trick?

Hello recap, what are you using now to partition? has the server system already been installed?

Hi spikeychris,

At the mo it's just Windows Computer Management, the O/S is installed, SP4, Office 2K and thats it untill I can do more partitioning.

One main problem that is restricting me is that the server is from Dell and they take up 35mb in their own partition.

What problem are you having with diskmgmt.msc recap? what size partition do you need? Have you tried partition commander? its free and works well.

With Computer Manager it will only allow 4 partitions in total, I require more now as the work here is expanding.

Will have a look at partition commander, thanks chris.

You are only allowed four primary partitions - but if you create an extended partion you can have as many as there are letters left in the alphabet

Thanks The Dark Sage, that is very usefull information.

No Probs.

- The partitions that create inside your extended partition are called logical partitions. They are fine for data but you can not install an operating system on them.
