    Hello,

    Not with Windows Server 2003 tools. But third-party tools such as Volume
    Manager (also known as Server Magic) can do this.

    Scott;
    Not with windows native tools;
    3rd party tools are required:

    Default resizing partition

    What about the Disk Management tool? That permits
    resizing etc. You find it under Other Tools/Tools/Tools
    by Category/Disk and Data Management from the Other Tools
    link on the Manage My Server Screen.

    Colin;
    Disk Management will not work in this case.
