I'm running Win 2000 on a four computer network.  The server has 2 partitions, C & D.  For some reason, D which is only 2GB, is where everything is happening and C 38GB is not.  How do I resize so D is the bigger partition?  Thank you

Wri,

I like Partition commander

http://www.v-com.com/product/Partition_Commander_Home.html

It does a good job and is priced right and it will take care of your server

The command like dispart tool may help too,  I'll send doucmentation.


Thanks
Mike

Before you do any resizing, make sure you have GOOD BACKUPS.  The resizing tools are SUPPOSED to work, but there's a reason the companies that make them say to do backups first - they aren't go to do anything for you if you lose your data (read - NO WARRANTY that the software works as it should).

If the system is running Windows 2000 Server, then you should use something like:

If you are running Windows 2000 Professional, you can use something like:
http://sea.symantec.com/content/product.cfm?productid=1

or

Hope this helps!
