Extend the partion in Windows 2003 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have try to extend the partition on server 2003 with Diskpart utility but its not successfully done. Please suggest and I have mentioned the steps that I followed.
    To extend a basic volume

       1. Open Command Prompt.
       2. Type:

       3. At the DISKPART prompt, type:

          list volume

          Make note of the number of the basic volume you want to extend.
       4. At the DISKPART prompt, type:

          select volume n

          Selects the basic volume, n, you want to extend into contiguous, empty space on the same disk.
       5. At the DISKPART prompt, type:

          extend [size=n]

          Extends the selected volume by size=n megabytes (MB).

    Please correct any thing is wrong.

  • Well the steps are correct, but require adjacent unpartitioned free storage space on the same disk to work.

    Also this is nothing related to Windows Home Server, so your posting here is basically off topic.
