Win2k3 - how to extend system partition in RAID0+1

Hello
I have the following problem. I have DL server with 2 disks running in Mirror (RAID0+1) and have 2 partitions, my C partition is too small so I decided to enlarge it. But i'm afraid there's no solution to do this without loosing my system. Is there any program that allows me to do this without loosing data (extend system partition in RAID)?

Regards

Windows is not able of expanding the C drive online. You can extend your hardware disk however Windows will not see this extra space

You need third party tools for expanding. One example is RDP.

You can create an image of your server, make the Array the size you want to have it an deploy the image back and make the C-partition as back as your new harddisk layout
