Hello,

I have a win2k3 server and I'm running low on disk space on my C:. I've used extpart in the past, but it's been a while and I lost my notes. I was wondering if any EE knows the step-by-step on expanding a drive. I will be expanding my C: into my A:. I have no data on A: This server is in production at this time and I don't remember if I will have to reboot?

See attached pic.

Thanks,

You must first delete A:, so that you can extend into Unpartitioned Space.

ok, I deleted A: and it now says unallocated. I'm in the c:\dell\extpart.

Perfect.  In most cases, no, but there are some unforeseen/unknown things that may make a reboot necessary.

The extpart went smoothly and successfully extended my C: Drive.

Thanks so much.
