Hi,
  I have an SBS 2000 server with a 10Gb System partition on a software raid mirrored drive. I have recently ghosted the enitire drive on this server to a 500Gb drive to create extra space for progs, data etc. I now have an unused 30 Gb partition (D:)  immediately to the right of the system partition (C:), is there any way for me to extend the system partition into this space to create a 40Gb system drive without rebuilding the server?
 
Thanks
Gaz

Thanks Steed,

AFAIK Partition magic doesnt work on server OS's, i dont mind purchasing software for the right solution.

Does anyone else have an opinion on using GParted in this situation?
