Exchange server 2010 and tools like partition magic

Hi all,

What I would like to do is recover 30gb of unallocated drive space that is 'infront' my c drive which is also the drive my exchange is on. We are critical on drive space and while a better solution is coming, it won't be here in time to stave off disaster.

Since the unallocated drive space is infront of the c: I can't extend the c: with it. I have to use 3rd party tools for it. I'm using a tool called Aomei partition assistant which I've used in the past but not like this. It has a move/merge function. I don't know exactly what this involves but I assume it will change starting blocks etc. Needless to say I'm a little nervous.

Anyone know if this is ok to do? I don't mind bringing down the store etc.

Just any advice would be great!

Thanks,
Primus

if you cannot do this with any of software, best thing is to image the existing drive completely to another drive & use norton ghost or some thing like that to restore it one by one partition. with it you can specify destination  partition size. it will be bootable. if you cannot boot you can recover it using bootable OS DVD command line tools
