Need Space on RAID 5

Below are some cases that RAID 5 users run into low disk space problem:

"Hello! I have Windows Server 2003 operating system on my PC with 3 SATA disks in RAID 5. Recently, the C drive on RAID 5 is running out of disk space and system frequently pops up low disk space warning message. Can I resize RAID 5 C drive on Windows Server 2003 without reinstalling system or rebuilding the array? What can I do to?"

"RAID 5 is running on low disk space on system partition on Windows SBS 2003 Standard. The RAID 5 array is created by 3 disks. There are two partitions on RAID 5, which include a system partition and a data partition. Now, the problem is that both system partition and data partition are nearly full. Should I rebuild the array to resize the RAID 5? Can I simply add a new hard disk to extend system partition without rebuilding the RAID 5 array?"

Solutions for RAID 5 Resizing on Windows Server

1. Add new disk to rebuilding RAID 5 array
If there is no free space on RAID 5, you can add new disk to rebuild RAID 5 array to allocate more space. If you need to rebuild RAID 5 array, you need to reinstall the system and reformat the disk. Therefore, you had better backup all important data on the RAID 5 array before partition resizing.

2. Resize RAID 5 array with third-party software
With third-party partition software, you can resize RAID 5 partition without rebuilding array. IM-Magic Partition Resizer Server allows you to move free space from other partition on the RAID 5 to extend the partition that needs space. Even if there is no free space on whole RAID 5, you can add new disk and move the space from new added disk to extend the partition that is lacking of free space on RAID 5.
