Hi,
I need to resize the c: and d: partitions on a Windows 2008 Server to reduce D: and and increase C:.

Ideally I need to do this whilst the server is up (but not doing much).

What is the best product to do this ?

Regards
Michael

The best way would be to backup C: and D:, remove D:, expand C: using diskmanagement, then restore the backup to a new D:.

Otherwise use Paragon's Disk Manager Business to resize and move D: towards the end of the HD, then you can either use diskmanagement or the paragon tool to expand C:
