Partition software would do it, but...

Frankly, your best option is to buy a new 1TB drive, install it, clone onto it (or copy the data) and reassign the drive letters.

That will future-proof things.

Keep your backups up-to-date, a 200G Oracle DB on a single drive (no RAID) is begging for disaster.

If you could move your data from E

by Mohammad Oweis In reply to windows 2003 hard drive i ...

if you could move your data from E drive somewhere else for ever, or if you have enough free space on drive E and could move the data temporary to somewhere else, you can use DISKPART from cmd to extend your D drive, but be careful for what you do, to not loos your data.

Or just get Partition Magic, or something similar to do the partitioning for you.

Good Luck.
