Resize boot partition W2K3
Posted on 2007-08-06
I made the mistake of configuring my W2K3 domain controller with a 12 gb boot partition. As you may suspect I'm rapidly running out of disk space. Its a Dell PowerEdge 2850, 72 gb hd total space via 3 36 gb drives, raid 5, 2 gb ram, C: is 12 gb, D: is 37 gb and F: is 18.6 gb. I want to steal 7 gb of disk space from D: and increase C: to 19 gb. D: has only 11 gb of data on it but it's my main production file share. On initial setup Acronis Partition Expert was installed but not used to set original partition sizes. Since I have never attempted this on a partition containing business critical live data& has anyone done this safely? Is Acronis capable of doing it? Obviously I will be armed with a full backup before attempting. I would appreciate any feedback.
