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.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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.
