I usually receive emails from our users that they concern about how to extend system partition. They all describe that the C: drive is out of the space and other partitions contain much free space. They don’t know if there is a way to extend their system partition safely without data losing. They are usually worried about 2 aspects: operating system is server 2000/2003/2008, and whether it is safe to extend.
