I have inherited a 2003 server in which windows sees a 3.5 gb basic disk (disk 0) from a hardware raid 5. This was given a 100 gb C:(primary) for OS and a 1950 gb E:(logical drive) for data-I think this was created with the rest of what Windows can see. There are 1445 gb unallocated. My task is to make this unallocated space useful. My first thought was to convert to dynamic, but the option is grayed out. Is this because window sees no space on the drive to use for the conversion?
That could be possible. As each dynamic disk writes a 1-MB database of information that it stores at the end of its volume, we may need to ensure there is sufficient unallocated space on the end of the disk.
