Resize Partition on Hardware Raid Array

This might seem like a simple question, but I wanted to check it out as I haven't needed to resize any server partitions for some time.

We have a 2008 server with very little space on the OS patition (C:) but bags of space on the Data partition (D:).

I'm planning to copy the data off D:, delete D:, resize C:, recreate D:, and then pull the data back to D:

Given that the disks are hardware RAID, transparent to Windows, one presumes this will work well and no special attention is required due to the RAID?

I just did this the other day, exactly how you described it, worked perfectly. No issues with the raid.

You have chosen the simplest and easiest way. One step you have forgotten - take backup of system partition before you proceed with backup.
The resizing (upsize in your case) is safe but still you don't know how it turns.

Hi, yes actually we're planning two backups but I take your point. Thanks very much.
