There is the (command line) utility Diskpart.exe, but I don't know if it
exists on Win2K server, and don't have one handy to check right now.

It should be able to resize your dynamic disk just fine.

[PCTECH] Resize Windows partition - Dynamic


Anyone know of any software that will resize a Windows Dynamic disk
partition without destroying the data? It's the system partition on W2K

I bought Paragon Partition Manager Server Edition for $300, installed it,
and then couldn't do it. All the options were grayed out. The help text
then said it only works on Basic disks, not Dynamic disks. The help text
literally ended with the 1-word sentence: "Sorry." The online info chart
comparing the 4 versions of Partition Manager says nothing about not
with Dynamic disks.

They did suggest a work around: Save everything to another disk, reformat
this disk, and reload everything. Well duh. Then why do I need Partition

Is it Friday yet?
