Windows Server Extend Partition

I have upgraded a VPS to 60 GB hard disk using my own Windows Server 2012 OS. I have done all necessary steps to externd the partition with Windows "Extend Volume Wizard". However, the VPS crashes everytime I do so. If I use a third party app I can't externd the volume, too. I get error like "Access denied". I am logged in as Administrator. Any ideas how to solve this?


  • Hello!

    If the "Extend Volume Wizard" is failing, you can try using diskpart. Diskpart also has a volume extend feature.

    I would recommend reading the docs, but off the top of my head, the syntax is along the lines of:


    list volume
    select volume 0 # choose the appropriate volume
