Resize the C partition in RAID 1 array.

I have a new Dell Poweredge T320 with 710 RAID controller.
The computer running Windows Home Server 2012 Essentials.

It has two 500 GB HDDs in a RAID1 configuration.  80 GB is allocated

for drive C (OS) and the rest to D, a data reader.

I want to resize the C drive to 120 GB to have head room.

Under WSE, I deleted the D partition and tried to expand the C partition, but that

did not work.

How should I do for this?  A glance through the manual Perc has not

show obvious way to resize the partition.

Thanks in advance,



I've expanded the C drive.

I was using the wrong tool.  I had chosen to manage after right click on the line of the COMPUTER in Windows Explorer and got a management tool very different than what I was used to and could not extend the partition.  I arrived at the family management tool in the field of computer science administration, and it has worked very well.  There are actually four partitions, a tiny 39meg OEM partition, a RECOVERY partition / 3 gb and now a 120 GB C and the rest in D.

Sorry to be so clueless.  I've never been exposed to any Server MS except Windows Home Server, and it's very different.

Next step: Add two raid 1 virtual disks - a 2 TB and a 4 to.  I still have two empty hot berries.

Thank you and sorry to waste your time.

    How should I do for deletion of this?  Vista disk management won't do anything for her, apparently, it is protected in some way, but I couldn't find any option in the BIOS for this protection activation/deactivation.

    Is it safe to try to remove it with for example Bootit NG or something that will damage?

    You can delete the partition hidden - beware, this will probably wipe the mbr and you will not be able to boot your system.

    I do it only when I do a new install of Vista.

    But you could possibly fix the mbr and resize the boot partition.

    If you have several volumes on a device, and one of them is running out of space, you will be able to expand without losing the files it contains.

    To enlarge a volume, you must delete the volume that comes after him on the device, and then move the end point of the volume you want to enlarge in the freed space. You cannot expand the last volume on a device. »

  • Resize the array element programmatically

    Hi, I need to programmatically resize the element of a matrix. The external framework of the matrix control must take the same size, but the internal element should chang size programmatically.

    I have found no property/method to do this. Wait using Xcontrol I guess.

    Any idea?

    Thank you.

    Of your image that you inserted, I guess your "matrix" is a display of 2D LED array.

    In order to resize these elements all in now the 'original size of the matrix", you must implement two steps:

    1 resize LEDs:

    • Get ArrayElement reference

    • Convert the reference to Boolean

    • Set the width and height for the Boolean value of the new value

    Please note that now change the size of all THE LEDs. This is because all items in a table share the same properties (including size) with the exception of the "Value" property

    In addition, the table shell is resized as it still shows the same amount of LEDs (columns, rows)

    2. calculate the new number of columns/rows to keep the table shell roughly the same size

    • Calculate the multiplier for resizing in each direction (led to half size smaller multiplier of 2 to the number of lines/columns each)

    • Multiply the number of rows/columns of this multiplier (rounded)?

    • Set the size property of dimension to the hull of the array to the new values

    Please note that this will be 'resize the table to about the same size as it did before. Resizes rounding issues very likely (it has no LED 0.5 available!)


  • automatically resize the array of strings

  • Size of the problems after the system partition resizing - are X 201 hard drives using a particular geometry?

    I recently copied my default system hard disk (320 GB / Western Digital) on a larger hard drive (500 GB / Hitachi) which I also ordered through Lenovo.

    Using a disk imager I first copied the old 1:1 the new disk drive. It gave me an exact copy of my original disk, with about 150 GB of space disk unallocated at the end of the training. I then put this copy in the system and it worked very well, I could start and work at it.

    -With the help of Acronis Disk Director 11 - I moved the hidden partition Lenovo restore to the end of the new drive, and then finally I expanded the system partition to fill all the available space before this recovery partition, giving me a system about 430 GB drive.

    These operation seemed to go very well at everything first, but in the end I got an alert that something had gone wrong and now the disk may be corrupted. Strange, I was able to boot from the disk and everything went well in the beginning but in fact - I now have a very weird problem: when you look in the Panel-online-online disk management management system all partitions are located and that I had the intention of size. The recovery partition (~ 17 GB) is at the end and the system partition is indicated as approximately 430GB and about 60% vacuum. Explorer Windows, however, always reports the size of the old partition (~ 280 GB) and only 10% of empty space, while if there is no resizing the partition space taken.

    In other words: different parts of Windows 'see' and report to different partition sizes. Running chkdsk does not resolve the issue.

    I then realized this phenomenon in the Acronis Disk Director forum and some guys Acronis replied, that problems of resizing and therefore also the difference could be due to the fact that IBM/Lenovo uses a geometry to non-standard head of 240 heads instead of 255 heads. ????  I then asked for details and - if possible - instructions - how we could solve this problem, but got no further response so far.

    Any idea what he's talking about? Lenovo indeed uses some non-standard disk or geometry? I would have thought, that the access disk is the disk drivers? Lenovo have to do here? Or BIOS of the device involved here?

    And finally: has anyone some experience with this problem and can give an idea how to solve this problem? I'd really like to * hate * restart everywhere have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall everything again!


    Thanks for this info!

    I'll try to get my wrecked HD using the Paragon suggested partitioning program and I guess, I'll also try to get a refund on DiskDirector 11, since the site explicitly, it is fully ready Windows7, which obviously isn't!

  • Within the VM, Apple_Boot Recovery HD with all the extra partition space, so cannot complete resize

    With the help of VMware Fusion Version 8.1.0 (3272237), I installed OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) via the recovery disc option. The default size of the drive was 40 GB, but I wanted 250 GB.

    When the parameters arose during the virtual machine creation process, I changed the size of the disk of 250 GB. A message pops up saying that resizing would take place after the virtual machine has been restarted. Thus, creating the VM is finished, I rebooted the VM.

    The virtual machine on my host shows operating system file size. Thus, the next step was to enter the guest OS and complete resize it using disk utility. However, I kept getting messages on the partition being too large.

    Entered the Terminal on the operating system prompted and listed drives so I can get the name of the volume to resize to the command line. Found this:

    list of $ diskutil

    / dev/disk0 (external, physical):


    0: GUID_partition_scheme * GB 269,5 disk0

    1: disk0s1 EFI EFI 209.7 MB

    2: Apple_HFS ElCapitan_VM 42.6 GB disk0s2

    3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 225.5 GB disk0s3

    Note the size of the Apple_Boot Recovery HD partition! This is supposed to be something like 650 MB, not GB225.5! (I hope my formatting remains, as I saw an option 'pre' or 'code' Editor < pre > and in the editor HTML didn't work.)

    I've not retried the vm creation, since it is a lengthy process. No idea what might have happened? Or how this can be corrected without re-creating the virtual machine from scratch?

    We have seen this issue, as well, and we reported it to the Apple... It looks like the storage of carrots merges horribly when a disc is "grown" and wrongly grows Recovery HD instead of the main partition.  I guess that a "growth hard disk" is something which cannot appear in a virtual machine, not on a Mac in the real world, it is perhaps not a scenario that Apple engineers had examined.

    Looking through our internal notes on this question, we had an engineer suggests that the problem can be avoided first reducing the primary partition (in disk utility) before more and more to fill the available space.  I have not tried this out, and I don't know if it can help to recover once you are already in the situation you are in.  If it doesn't help out you immediately, you might want to give it a try in a fresh VM.

    I hope this helps!
