Windows 2000 is an operating system for use on both client and server computers. It is the successor to Windows NT 4.0, and is the last version of Microsoft Windows to display the "Windows NT" designation. Four editions of Windows 2000 were released (Professional, Server, Advanced Server, and Datacenter Server) that shared a core set of features, including many system utilities such as the Microsoft Management Console. All versions of the operating system support NTFS 3.0, Encrypting File System, as well as basic and dynamic disk storage. The Windows 2000 Server family includes support for Active Directory services, Distributed File System and fault-redundant storage volumes.

I have used Paragon Hard Disk Manager and partition magic for these operations.  I used Paragon server suite to repartition a 2003r2 windows server sometime ago with excellent results (no loss of data and a total of 1:45 hours downtime - on a saturday).

"OK, folks, we nailed the IBM contract. We're going to have many meetings like this to discuss features and functions...and how to move from 86-DOS, the CP/M clone we just purchased, to our baby, MS-DOS. This meeting is to discuss drive letters."

"Well, even the first IBM PC is going to offer an option for two floppy drives, so we'll need A and B."

"Yeah, but at the NCC in May, Shugart showed a 5.25-inch hard drive that's going to work in a PC!"

"Wow! I missed that...a hard drive in a PC?! You gotta be kidding. What's the capacity of that bad boy?"

"I've never seen one, but the announcement said five megabytes! And that's after formatting!"

"Yikes! Who is ever going to need 5 MB on a PC?! How would you ever fill it up?!"

"Who knows, but I think we should plan for it...they're already shipping 'em, although IBM hasn't announced it as an option in the PC...yet. We know there will always be two floppy drives, A and B, so let's plan on the hard drive being C."
