Was this my fault...
...and why did it happen?
So one of my partitions on server 2003 was running out of space. So I wanted to extend the volume into 10GB of the 60GB available on another disk. I put into 10240 to extend by 10GB but it took up the rest of the free space leaving me with nothing spare and changed the disk type to spanned.
I can't see what I did wrong?
Any suggestions on a good way to claw back the space?

You can extend partitions with 2003, just not shrink them.
