Today I had to extend the partition of a Windows 2003 Server.

In the past I did this several times with diskpart:

diskpart.exe -> list volumes
select volume [number of the partition to extend]
extend volume size=[SIZE TO EXTEND in MB]

After doing this, diskpart and the Windows Disk Management show the extended size but Windows Explorer didn’t so. A colleague pointed a KB article to me which described this behaviour.

You have type in another diskpart command (brought with SP2 – otherwise there is a hotfix):

diskpart.exe
select volume [number of the partition to extend]
extend filesystem

Now the whole space could be seen in the Explorer, too.
