Can you repartition the drive without having to reinstall everything?

By mbruner7172 ·
We have a server that was partitioned leaving very little drive space for the C: partition. Now the server is constantly running out of space and my question is -- Can you repartition the drive without having to reinstall everything all over again and pulling the server offline? Also, can you delete iis6 logs, KB logs to help free up space without crashing the drive? Thank you.

you can resize partitions. I use EASEUS to resize partitions. loads of other tools available just google it.


you can delete IIS logs without screwing up IIS. If you don't ever look at them, you can turn off logging for web sites... visit microsoft technet for KB articles on IIS.

But you need Space on the Drive that you can access.

If you want a free utility G Parted is available

Or Parted Magic is another tool with the same base which may suit your needs better

Or you can just Google Partition Manager

It would be highly advisable to backup your data before altering a partition just in case you do it wrong and lose data.
