resizing the C: drive on a RAID system?


B

Brad Pears

I have a windows 2000 Dell SC600 Server configured with a 3-drive RAID-5
system. It has a C: partition (4gig) and a D: partition (144gig). This
server was purchased and configured this way from Dell.

I would like to reconfigured the C partitian to be a 10gb partition.

Is there any tools out there that will allow me to steal another 6gb from
the D partition?? Keep in mind this is a 3 drive RAID 5 configuration so
will likely me much trickier than just reconfiguring a single drive's
partitions...

Also, I really do not want to have to completely re-do my server (i.e.
reformat and reinstall the OS etc.. etc...)

If anyone knows of any tools, please advise!

Thanks, Brad

There are various partition resizing tools available that can do a job
like this. Partition Magic, Acronis Disk Director, Boot It Next Generation
(free),...

Note that if you are running Win2K Server, you will need the server
version of most of these programs.
