Add 80GB Drive to Existing 18GB Drive
Posted on 2004-03-25
I am working on a Dell OptiPlex GX240 for someone:
- W2K wtih one 18 GB Drive as c:
- One internal zip drive.
- One internal cd rom
- One external 4mm tape drive
- A lot of important information on this computer.
I've been looking for a way to slave the new 80GB drive and then extend the c: partition to include the 80BG of space. Is this possible?
This seems to me like to least possible risk solution, since there will be no reinstalling windows, restoring from backup, etc. I can keep the current OS and data intact and just "add" the new drive.
If my proposed solution isn't possible then any suggestions or tips for the next best (least risk) way of going about adding this new 80GB drive would be appreciated.
