How to re-partation a mirrored SBS drive

By abcs ·
I have a Dell Server PESC420 running 2003 SBS with 2 80GB drives that are mirrored. Drive C: is 12 GB and drive E: is 67 GB.
I would like to make the C: drive 25GB. Is there any software that will allow me to do this, without deleting the volume and starting over, and having to re-install everything.

TIA to anyone who can answer me.

Do you know if your disk has been converted to dynamic or is it set to basic. This is visible in the Disk Management MMC snap-in.

You could try Acronis Disk Director or EASEUS.

I would also look at moving your swap file to another partition, this could save upwards of 4GB if it is on your C: drive. You might also uninstall any apps (SQL Server, Oracle, etc) and move them to another partition. I typically create my C: drive on a server at 15GB for Server 2003.

Is this hardware mirroring or is software (Windows) mirroring?
