    Hi,

    Assuming you have free space next to your OS partition on the same drive,
    Boot It Next Generation ([url]www.terabyteunlimited.com[/url]) can resize partitions

    yes you are correct, there is continuous free space on the
    OS drive. I will try this, and post my results.

    thank you.

    If you can find a partition manager that is compatable with Win2k3, you
    should be able to resise the partition without having to reinstall the OS.
