How to resize Windows Server 2008 partition

To expand a partition on Windows Server 2008, you need to right click on the partition in the graphical view of the Disk Management screen and choose Extend Volume to call upon the Extend Volume Wizard. Click next on the welcome screen to regulate the new size of your selected partition. But noted down that on dynamic disk group, space might be owed from multi disks available on the system, but on a basic disk only space commencing the current disk are available. If you found Next button is disabled, this means that more space has been demand than is obtainable on the disk. Use this and reply.

Windows Server 2008 Disk Management has ability to shrink volume and extend volume. But there is a huge disadvantage: "Extend Volume" is available unless there is continous space. Otherwise, you cannot extend volume.
