Increase the size of a Netware 6.5 Novell Volume

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have a Novell Netware 6.5 server. The user volume is filled up. It is currently 72 GB in size. I need to create a larger User Volume.

I have a blank hard disk of 146GB. How can I copy the entire contents of the old USER volume into the New hard disk without losing the rights information of the files?

Is it possible to do this when the users are working on the server? [Obviously all files will not be used by the user simultaneously.]
So, is there a way of doing this LIVE as I cannot bring the server down for a long period of time and the copying of 72GB would take a very long time.
Thank you for your inputs.
