I have the following situation: I set up a server in vmware with disks made to a vendor's specifications. They are disk1 (C: drive) 85GB,
disk2 (D: Drive) 100GB and disk3 (Page file drive) of 35 GB. The vendor failed to install their software on D: and put it on C: instead, which is now running out of space and cannot be extended any further. All three disks (vmdk files) reside in the same datastore with the same pathing. Here is my question: Can I delete the disk 2 vmdk and then remove the D: drive in the Windows Server OS and take that space to expand disk1and it's vmdk file and then extend the C: partition in the server OS? I know I can delete the vmdk and disk in vmware but will that then become available for the expansion as I described?
