Thanks for your clarification Tp168. I replied based on your given
data in your original question. Nowhere in your question is it
indicated that you wanted a solution using Windows Advanced Server's
own tools nor did you indicate that you want freeware. The answer
contained solutions you require as far as your original question is

If you check the links after Partition Magic, you will see that there
are many "free to try" software. Since it's most likely that you will
adjust the partition only once, you don't need to buy the software.
