How can I extend a hard drive partition
Posted on 2007-11-29
I have a Dell Poweredge 2900 Server, runing sbs 2003. The main drive was delivered partitioned (by mistake). The main drive C was not supposed to be partitioned; however, Dell partitioned it (25 GB to Drive C and 45 GB to Drive E). Unfortunetly, now drive C is almost full and I was told that I could extend it and use the space allocated to drive E). There is nothing on Drive E at all. Both partitions C and E are basic and NTFS. The Drive is Mirrored (RAID 1)
I was told to use EXTPART so I did the following:
downloaded and extpart to c:\dell\extpart
deleted drive E
from the CMD ran the following C:\Dell\Extpart Extpart C: 40000
when I run this I get an error "cannot connect to drive c"
I tried deleting the E partition and running the same above script and it produced the same error.
I am at a loss what to do next. Is there a better program to try (server capeable)? Am I doing something wrong? What other options do I have?
