How do I re-partition a boot drive that is a Dynamic Type on Windows Terminal Server 2003
Posted on 2010-01-04
I've been doing a lot of research on this topic but still am not sure as to the best route to take considering the variables involved. The C:\ of my Windows Terminal Server 2003 is running low on space. I would like to expand the C:\ partition. I believe that I can expand by using space from the subsequent 55.68GB of unallocated space. I've tried to extend the partition using Windows but because it's a boot drive it won't allow me to do this. From what I've read it also seems that because the Type of the Disk is 'Dynamic' that throws another wrinkle into it. I'm looking for an inexpensive but safe and secure solution to do this. Because it's a production server, I can't afford to have any downtime during business days. I sure hope someone can give me a definitive solution that is tried and tested with the variables that I have stated. I would also like it to be a solution that someone who is not an expert in this area can do without trouble. I have attached an image of the Disk Management Window.
Thanks for your time.
