resizing the boot partition of a Windows 2000 server
Posted on 2003-11-04
Unfortunately, I seem to have created a C drive on my installation of Windows 2000 server of only 4GB with 29GB spare. I need to make the drive fill the whole (or almost whole anyway!) space. Is there any way that I can do this? I have heard of several options but since I had installed multiple applications, including databases, before realising I am less that confident about trying them for the sake of it! I'd really prefer if there were a way within windows 2000 to do this (and to keep the disks basic) however I have read that I could change the disk to dynamic and resize on the hoof. I am unsure from the documentation, however, as to whether I can boot straight away or whether this means that I have to reinstall everything. The other thing that I have read may be possible is using server magic although I'm unsure about whether this is the right way to go as this is not a specific Microsoft product.
Many thanks in advance for any advice that anyone can give me!
