Increasing C drive space on Windows 2003 Server

Last Modified: 2012-05-05

I have inherited an exchange environment which has been installed on a Hyper V virtual machine.  The C drive (system drive) has 30GB on disk space and which has started to slowly run out of disk space (something I’m still trying to figure out).  I have temporarily moved the paging file to the D:  drive until I get the space issue resolved.  I have allocated an additional 20GB from the Virtual Host and I can now see this unallocated space within Computer management but I can’t allocate it to the C drive.  The OS is Windows 2003 Standard, Exchange 2003 and the disk is basic.
How can I go about expending the size of the C drive.
Many thanks!
