I originally posted about this server in question 27847203:
SBS 2003 software RAID 1 - can partitions be resized? Software recommendations?
Follow-up and problem:
SO the freed up space from deleting Symantec temp and definition files didn't last very long. Today I bit the bullet and did exactly what Noxcho said:
"You can brake the mirror then convert one drive into basic and after that make resize. Then convert the disk back to dynamic and rebuild the mirror."
I broke the mirror. I then used Easus Partition Master Server Ed to try to change it from Dynamic to Basic and there it gave me an error in Chinglish: "Find some partition error, continue this operation might cause boot failure and data loss, are you sure to proceed?" I looked it up and Easeus support suggests chkdsk /f - good idea. So I boot from Win 2003 server disk and go to Recovery console and run chkdsk /f and it doesn't recognize the switch /f. So I ran /r it gives a warning that there are some unrecoverable errors and goes no further. Greaaaaaat....
This disk still boots but it's no longer mirrored. I can't seem to run chkdsk on it to fix it. I think my next move is to use Ghost to clone it for safe keeping then find a disk utility that can deal with the "unrecoverable error"
The second disk: drive1 that was split off the mirror doesn't quite boot. If I move it to Primary channel, It gives me some error about user account failure - I forget. in the background, in what should be the login window, it says it's restoring Directory Services or something. I didn't write it down.
Any suggestions on a strong server disk utility that can fix my "unrecoverable error"?
(The server has run, mostly without problems for 12, 13 years. We're getting close to retiring it...
