I checked help and support from the start
entered volume to search for
then Selected Microsoft Knowledge Base
and found this under the technical Articles

You cannot create a shadow storage area association between volumes when you use the Windows Server 2003 Volume Shadow Copy service

It was number 7 on a list of 15

so I can not find the web page at Microsoft

C: cannot be an extended partition if I remember correctly, it must be a primary partition. What you are trying to do is a function of the extended disc partition type therefore it wont be available as an option.

You could clone it onto a larger drive and use partition magic or similar to give you more room though, though you would would still be limited to the physical size of the new hdd.

Basically the problem lies in that the OS needs to load up before stuff like spanned disks can work so the os cant be on a spanned volume. Horse before cart type thing.
