Re: Expand logical drive

The only solution you could do is to make a volume set by taking the existing D drive and adding the free space. THis is to be done within Windows 2000 under Disk Management. If you need help with this we suggest you run a search on Microsoft's web site for instructions. Compaq strongly recommends backing the data from the D drive, deleting this partition, creating a new D partition using all of the free space and restoring from backup.
