I have a user with a Windows XP computer.  A RAID1 configuration was initially installed with 150GB capacity.  This was partitioned into 30/120.  As you can imagine, the 30 is too small and the 120 has a lot of free space.  I need to (a) reduce the size of the 120 and (b) increase the 30.  With VISTA this would  be no problem, but with RAID ??? and XP ???  I am familiar with partition magic and have used it successfully many times, but NEVER in a RAID environment.  I am looking for something sure-fire as this is a production machine and cannot be down more than a couple of hours.  Any ideas.

If you own the Acronis Disk Director, you can resize the partition without any lost.

I have used Acronis before (not Disk Director) and was FAIRLY satisfied.  You get some points for trying - we did it the old fashioned way (took twice as long, but was easier to control).  Thanks Punky!
