Mirrored Drives with two partitions C and E - can I extend the primary and remove the E partition using the ExPart utility from Dell or do I need something else?
Posted on 2008-10-11
My primary partition (C) is only 12g and has only 2gig free - the secondary partition (E) has nothing on it and is 21Gig - I want to remove the E partition, merging into the C partition and essentially have a mirrored two drive array with one partition of 32gig... I had talked with Dell and they had said 'yes' but they don't support ExPart so I would be taking my chances.. That was last week, I talked with someone else from Dell today and they said ExPart won't extend a Primary partition (and said it was mentioned in the documentation, which I couldn't find mention of that limitation when I read the docs).. - So has anyone extended a primary partition with Expart or might I need some other app to do this... Any advice would be much appreciated... Which Dell support person should I trust with my server? <G>
