How to manage the disk volumes of your Windows Server cloud server

All our Cloud servers with Windows operating system have a customized disk partitioning structure so that, once you have created your Cloud Windows server, you can easily decide whether you want your O.S. to have a single disk volume C:/ or you also want to have a second disk volume E:/

Below, we explain, for each version of Windows OS available for your Cloud, the two methods for your server to have a single C:/ disk volume or two C:/ + E:/ disk volumes
