How to Extend a Windows Partition

Published by at 2:58 pm under Windows

Extend a Windows volume in command line is pretty easy on Windows with the Diskpart utility. It is available on all Windows flavours. It needs to be done everytime a partition is extended on a SAN for example.
Note that this works for secondary partitions, you need a special tool to extend the C: drive.

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrateur>diskpart

Microsoft DiskPart version 5.2.3790.3959

On computer: RADON

DISKPART> select volume Y

Volume 5 is the selected volume.

DISKPART> extend

DiskPart successfully extended the volume.
