Hello, I have some problems with my data partition. Here are the details: I have Windows 2008 Data Center Edition which I have downloaded through the internet. It has 10TB space allocation. I have 5 partitions with 2TB spaces for each. After allocating those spaces for each partition, I wanted to apply the remaining unallocated space to my primary NTFS drive C: but I cannot do it. I got an error when I attempted to expand my volume. I have searched for online solutions but I didn’t get any trusted solution. I saw I am not alone. There are also a lot of people experiencing the same kind of problem. Please tell me what did you guys do with this?
Issue when Expanding Volume in Windows 2008
Try using the following procedure to extend the volume and see if it will work for you:
You will first need to select the volume that you want to extend, and thereafter you will need to specify by how large to make the extension. Follow the steps below:
You will need to go to the command prompt, and then type diskpart.exe.
You will then type list volume to display the existing volumes on the computer.
After that you will need to type Select volume number, and here the volume number is number of the volume that you want to extend.
Once you have done all that, you will need to type extend [size=n] [disk=n] [noerr].
And lastly you will type exit to exit Diskpart.exe.
