Gaining some space back?
Just been looking at our server and discovered it was getting a little low on space (not now as I had a clearing up session), its split into two drives, one hosting the operating system one hosting some other bits like profiles etc. Is there an easy way to resize the drives as the the second partition has more free space than we will need...and if there is an easy way what should I look out for when doing it!

Are the drives in a RAID at all?

Only if I had 2008...which I don't. Anyway thanks for the suggestion, managed to clear up enough space anyway to save messing with the partitions. Should last long enough now till we eventually go over to 2008 and a new server in the next year or so.

+ for Gparted tool.... Very good.. Bit scary to use but has never failed me yet.

I use Symantec Ghost but as this is part of ghosting to another drive, it's not so scary. As long as I ge the source and destination right!

Go virtual and then just allocate more space to your disk when your getting low! Even easier.
