Query on changing Logical Drive
Posted on 2004-11-25
Windows 2000 Server configured with RAID5 (4x80GB).
Current set-up in disk management as follows:
System (C:) = Primary Partition (active) 20GB
Accounts (D:) = Logical Drive 20GB
Unallocated = 183GB
I must've set this up incorrectly as I now see that I should have created an Extended Parition that used the remaining disk space (203GB), THEN created Logical Drives within the Extended Partition (correct me if I'm wrong or you have a better recommendation).
My only trouble is that I have installed an accounts package to the D: drive which I cannot uninstall (it will take forever to reinstall). Can I buy something like Partition Magic to help me, and will it allow me to change the existing Logical Drive (D:) so that it exists in an newly created Extended Partition?
