Hey all,

I have this DC (SBS2003), a dell poweredge 1600SC.

Anyways, it has 2x36gig mirror raided and partitioned in C:15gigs and D:20gigs.

The C: is full. I would to remove D: partition and extent C: to occupy the whole 36 gig HD's

Can I perform this from the Disk Manager? If not what can I use, maybe Gparted?


Thanks,

Heeter

The C:/ is NTFS.

I deleted the D: partition, now it is just free space.


Thanks,

Not sure Windows has this ability although I could be wrong - may have to use something like Parition Magic or the like.

So the Disk Management can't perform this, that I must use PartitionMagic?

Why Not GParted?

Okay Thanks,

UPDATE:

Hey All,

PartitionMagic doesn't work on Windows2003Server. Won't install on NT/2000Server/2003Server.

What a waste of money that was.......................

Gotta find something else, hopefully freeware now.

Might be worth contacting Symantec and seeing if you can get a refund, but doubt they will go for it since it's not listed in the system requirements/compatability.

Sorry :(

I hear that many tools can resize partition, such as partition magic, GParted, disk director, easeus partition master….. As I know, partition magic doesn't support Windows Server 2003. I would like to use easeus partition master, it is simple and easy to resize SBS 2003 partition. Thanks easeus.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
