Windows Server drive replacement imaging and partition resizing
Posted on 2011-03-22
My first posting as a new member here, so please be gentle with me :)
I have an urgent project that requires me to replace hard drives in 3 Dell Rack servers running a mixture or Server 2003 or 2008 and needs to be done this weekend.
What I need to ask with the time frame I have is what is the cheapest software option that you would use to image the existing drives to the new ones along with resizing the partitions to allow the OS's breathing space
I am typing this question from home and don't have exact info here with me but from memory they are all configured as raid 1 except for one drive partition that is sitting on our Dell SAN but needs to come back to a new local server drive partition.
Any or all help and advice greatly appreciated
