unable to extend the C partition of a mirrored disk.

Hi,

I am trying to extend the partition of the C drive of my Windows 2008 server but not able to.  

The C drive is currently mirrored - please see the screen shot.

Please advise how I can do this.

Thanks.

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Could it be that "extend" is greyed out? Then it's not possible without breaking the mirror, first. But that does not hurt. Break the mirror, extend one of those two and recreate the mirror (will need the second disk emptied).

you can't extend a mirrored volume
the only extend options for a dynamic disk is for simple or spanned volumes

If I break the mirror, should I do "Remove Mirror" or "Break Mirrored Volume"?

Remove mirror, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc787944(v=ws.10).aspx
Once you remove a mirror from a mirrored volume, the removed mirror becomes unallocated space and the remaining mirror becomes a simple volume that is no longer fault tolerant. All of the data on the removed mirror is deleted.
That's what we need.
