WinServer 2k3 - Increase the primary (boot) partition

By munsch ·
Hey folks,

I've an active server in use 24/7 that i inherited. The primary partition is tiny and filling fast. It has bootable C: and non-bootable logical drives, which are both on the same physical RAID-5 array of 3 disks.

C: is nearly full. I need to borrow some space from . Soon.

I'm looking for anyone with first-hand, personal experience resizing a production Windows server's boot part. I know there's a lot of competing partition software out there; i've read about them myself. What stands the best chance of getting this done, safely, and within a single night's maintenance window, and with no file corruption or partition destruction lurking around the corner?

Increase the server system partition without reboot

As the server in use 24/7, you'd better use a tool that can increase the parttion size without reboot. paragon should reboot after install or resize the OS partition, acronis should reboot when operating the OS partition. easeus partition master is the only SW that can increase the OS partition without reboot.
How to resize the server,
