-------------------------------------------------------I have done this couple 
times with acronis products successfully. Just
make sure you have a good backup plan in case something goes wrong. One
quick way would be moving page file from c: to some other partition and
reboot the server. This should clear up about double size of your ram

Subject: [ExchangeList] Resize partitions on Server 2003

http://www.msexchange.org
-------------------------------------------------------Is there a way to
resize partitions on a Server (safely)? This is on a
my Exchange Server.

My C: drive is running out of space but the 3 other partitions are way
bigger than they need to be.

Do I need to save, repartition, format, and restore or can I make one of
those partitions smaller and give it to the C:\ drive partition?

This is all on a Raid 5 set of drives.

Or should I add another drive, move the C:\ drive partition information
to the new drive and not mess with resizing?
