First thats give little information.

Windows NT4 (SBS) server
Raid 1 ( think it raid 1 not t shore but it is and raid)

The problem is I am running out of harddrive space on the partion where exchange is located.
Now long time ago this server was both e-mail/fileserver but now we have an two server's one for e-mail and other for fileserver.
Now on this e-mail server there is a partion with G's of free space.  What I want to do is mearge two partions in to one.  I tryed to use PartionMagic but that will not run on a server.

And ideas?  (My boss don't mind paying for software)

The only thing to add, that servermagic is for NetWare servers!
Volume manager is for NT servers, that must be the answer!

As you can see on the second link you gave => "Formerly called ServerMagic for NT PowerQuest VolumeManager 2.0" So the second one has to be the newest version, I suggest you go for that one.
