Windows 2008 - adding unallocated disk space to an existing volume

Posted on 2011-10-25
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a server with 300GB SAS RAID 1 drives.
Drive C: is about 60GB.
Drive D: is about 180GB
Drive 0 is set to basic disk.
 I have 40GB of disk space that is unallocated that I want to add to drive D:
Do I need to convert Drive 0 to dynamic before I can add that 40GB to drive D: ?
