diskpart problem - space not showing


J

Jeff Brinkerhoff

Server is Win2K, sp4. Recently expanded a RAID-5 (hardware
raid, dell Perc2SC) from one physical 36gb disk (data only
drive, os is on another) with two partitions, 18gb each
(E: and F:)

After RAID expansion, I had the two original partitions,
and ~36GB free after F:.

I used DISKPART to expand F: into the free space. It
appeared to work fine, showing the space in diskpart
~54GB). Note: the volume (volume 9) had a * next to it
after the operation.

The space did not show in explorer, my computer, or volume
properties.

So, we rescaned drives in drive manager. No change. So we
restarted.

No change.

Server appears to run, which is good because this client
is nearly a 24x7 shop this time of year. However, they are
still creaping up on "full" on this volume (~3.5gb free).

I found this:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=329826

however, it appears that this only applies to pre-sp4
machines. How can I tell if this applies to me, and more
importantly, how can I fix the problem?!?!? Client is VERY
nervous.

Please post replies or even better email to jbrinker at
syr dot edu.

ANY help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks-
Jeff

I had a similar problem and I got a utility from Microsoft to fix it. The utility is called "fsextend.exe". Aparently there is a problem with the version of Nfs.sys that's on Win2k
