2 GB Partition

By CLT-IT_Tech ·
My NT Server came preloaded with WINNT directory on a 2GB partition (C: drive). This has limited us in spite of the fact that we have a load more disk space. It seems like everybody's software wants to be loaded in the main partition in order to operate properly... IE: Symantec AV & Veritas BU Exec. Can I safely increase the size of my system partition without reload of NT?

Yes you can but you'll need to use a third-party application (i.e. PartitionMagic). You can find it on the web for an average cost of $50.00. Of course you may be able to find it local as well.

As per previous answer, you need to use PartitionMagic or similar tool to do this. Be sure you get the version compatible with NT Server. However, the programs you mention WILL work if you install them to a different partition - I do this all the time. If you haven't already installed them to the C: partition, you can change the installation location during the setup by choosing a custom setup rather than the typical one, just like any other program. Hope this helps!
