Need help shrinking/extending a volume on my server
I have inherited a Windows 2008 domain controller that only has 40gb allocated to the system drive! I am struggling with disk space and need to reallocate the space over the volume.
I have attached a screenshot of Disk Manager - you can see Disk 0 has C: (OS) and E: (datapart1)
I am trying to use that second partition (datapart1) to claw back space for the C: drive.
I have clicked on the shrink volume option and after some calculation, it tells me I can only shrink the volume by 8692MB - even though it has 818Gb free.
Two questions -
1. Why can I only shrink by this tiny amount?
2. Am I going about this the right way?
I don't mind paying for a partition product if that is going to be safer.
