Resizing NTFS Partitions

Resizing NTFS Partitions

Resizing NTFS Partitions

We have an existing 2 Gb NTFS partition(C)on an NT server with all the system files and Exchange. It is running out of disk space, but we have another 7 Gb partition (D). Do you know of an easy way to resize the 2Gb partition, using some of the disk space on the 7Gb partion?

RE: Resizing NTFS Partitions

Try using Partition Magic to resize the C drive. Also, to free up some drive space you can move your paging file to the d drive, and check the directory c:\winnt for a memory dump file, and delete it if it exists. If the server has ever blue screened on you and created a dump file, it is hogging disk space as well. The file is called memory.dmp

RE: Resizing NTFS Partitions

As Bruce says, Partition Magic should work fine. Keep in mind however that NT cannot use a system partition larger than 7.8 GB, so be careful not to resize above that.
