Using Ghost to extend C: drive partition

Thanks to Merv for this post:


Yes, Ghost (2003) can be used to do this but you’ll need a spare drive (IDE will do) to hold the image you create.  Do a complete backup of your server first for safety.  Create a set of Ghost boot disks.  Boot into Ghost from them.  Then image all your partitions to the spare drive using the “partition-to-image” procedure.  Verify the image.  Then restore to the original drive using the “disk-from-image” procedure.  During the restore procedure setup, it will allow you to adjust the partition sizes on the
target drive.

You can also restore to a new drive if you need to increase the overall capacity of your system.
