Need to span two drives on Windows Server 2008 R2 but concerned about programs already installed
Posted on 2013-12-10
Ok I am a newbie to Server 2008 R2 and have not used server in many years - yes backwards company with no money.
here is my problem
we bought a server from dell and install new programs ( fishbowl, QuickBooks, EDI transfer program and office ) on drive C.
My mistake did not realize that drive C was a partition and that there was a data partition (D)- the drives are basic - OS is fully updated
The other day just before my vacation (figures) it popped up low on space - this is when I realized about the partition- my bad, my stupid mistake, yes I am whacking myself on the back of the head.
So here is my question is there a way to span the drives without having to have to reinstall all the programs? I understand that I would have to make the drives Dynamic to span them, will this effect the programs already installed there are three plus Server?
I uninstalled office and reinstalled on Drive D the data drive but still I only have 3+ gig space on C the other programs are all intertwined and I would rather not have to reinstall and start fresh. One program in particular has to be reinstalled and set up by the author since it download integration program from EDI.
Any help or suggestion is welcomed.
