Hi All,

I've got one Big SQL Server production VM that was deployed incorrectly by the contractor with 4x drive like below:

Big VM
My question is:

1. How to detach or migrate the C:\ drive only to separate VMDK drive, so I can maximize the Disk 0 capacity ?
2. Is it possible to start the VM with no impact to the SQL Server functionality after the C:\ partition migration to dedicated VMDK as the new C:\ drive with no drive letter change ?

How can I achieve this ?
