Hello ,

I need to increase the size of the system partition on a 2003 server.

The server has hardware raid 5 implemented.

2 Basic NTFS partitions.



Will Partition Manager 5.6 allow me to reduce the d partition and add the new free space to the system partition.
Are there any considerations regards RAID 5 i should be aware of?

    Hello umcc,

    I really don't think any 3rd party tool will resize the partitions of a hardware RAID 5 configuration.  Usually this is done using the program that created the RAID setup, like Compaq SmartStart.  3rd party tools like Partition Manager, Partition Majic only manage the actual drives themselves.  However, I would call their tech support number just to make sure, before you try the product, and please back up your system if they say it works.
