REMOVING space from W2k3/ML370G3

Hello all,

I've previously added space to a raid array/drive/volume/ on a ML370 G3 running W2k3 Std, and now i want to take it away.

I added the space by extending the array with new disks added, but i now would like to remove them. I'd imagine i'd need to "shrink" the array and remove the extra space created in Windows. The extra space was give to a secondary partition (not the boot partition) using dynamic disks...

Anyone got any ideas/tips etc? Can this even be done or do i have to backup, rebuild the server/array & restore all the data?
