I'm currently running a Windows 2003 Server that is running out of diskspace on C:
I have a D: that i can destroy and make extra freespace for C:

my concern is that if i destroy D: and expand C: to the freespace under a RAID 0+1 or RAID1+0 is it going to cause any corruption in the C:
My first thoughts are it shouldn't but the vtoc might get screwed somehow in the process and i wanted to make sure that everything would be kosher to expand or if there were specific steps for it.

Help would be appreciated thanks.

Break that raid, clone from one drive to the other which usually includes the option to stretch partitions to free space next to them, recreate that raid.

You may break a mirror, you must not break a stripeset.
I never used raid 10 (mirrored stripeset) before, but I assume you could break it, read the manual.
