Resizing System Partition with PERC 6/i

cipher42 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I've inherited a Dell server that is running out of space on C:. I'd like to quickly and painlessly resize the C drive with partitioning software. However, the fact that there is a RAID card in the equation is causing me some troubles. I've resized plenty of desktops in my time, but never a server with hardware RAID.

Can anyone recommend software that is GUARANTEED to work with the Dell PERC 6/i? Hopefully someone has resized the system partition with this RAID card before! :)

Of course, proper backups are available but I'd be more comfortable with a tried and true solution to save the headache of the restore....

Thanks in advance!
