How to expand the disk space of your Windows server

Each Windows server plan comes with a different amount of disk space. By default we allot 20 GB to the C drive for every plan. If the plan comes with more than 20 GB of disk space, then the customer can control how they want to allocate the rest of the disk space of their server.
Below we show how to expand the disk space of your Windows server.
1. Access Disk Management.
    A. Go to command prompt and type command "diskmgmt.msc"
2. The Disk Manager window will come up. You will notice your "Disk 0" on bottom of screen to have the correct total space on disk. The space you are not using is under "Unallocated" on the right side of "Disk 0".
3. There are two ways to take advantage of the unallocated space on your available disk. Method A below is most common.
    A. If you want to add all the unallocated spaces available to your "C:" drive.
        1. Right click on "C:" and choose "Extend Volume" to use all the space in your drive.
        2. Just click "Next", "Next", and "Finish" on the following window prompt.
        3. You are done.
    B. If you want to create a new partition with a new letter like "E:" drive.
        1. Right click on the "Unallocated" section of the drive.
        2. Choose "Simple Volume"
        3. Choose "Next", "Next".
        4. Choose available drive letter you want (D, E, F, etc). Click Next.
        5. Choose your format preference and click Next.
        6. click "Finish" and you are done.
