I'm looking for a free partition extending tool that will work on a windows server 2003, with a raid 5 array. Anybody not of a free one?

Not diskpart.exe.

Thanks,
ABBEtech

Have you done this before with GParted? I have downloaded it to a cd and can boot with the cd. However, I'm not sure how to extended the c drive with the new drive. Any input would be appreciated.

I got it to pickup the other drive, but lost something windows needed (good thing it was on a test server) . I did it by removing the partition on the second drive, selecting the primary partition and resizing the drive to include the unallocated space. I will play with this at a later date and once I get it mastered, I'll posted it on the forum here. Thanks for your input.
