Windows 2003 Disk Management
Posted on 2009-07-13
My server is running Server 2003 and was initially built with 2 hard drives, the smaller C: drive for os & programs, and a larger D: drive for data.
A couple years later the D drive was approaching full and a third hard drive was added. Drive's 2 and 3 were converted to Dynamic Disk's and our data volume (D:) was spanned across to the new disk drive.
A couple years later I enter the picture. There is plenty of space on drive 3 so that drive 2 is not needed and I want to pull it out. (I hate the idea that if one drive dies, we loose the data on both drives).
Is there any way to "unspan" this volume? Move all of the data from disk 2 to disk 3 and remove it from the span? I know this is possible with LVM on multi disk linux volumes as I've done that before. But I don't see anything in disk management that will help me. Are there any dos commands that will help out?
Thanks is advance!
