Symantec System Recovery 2013 and Repartitioning

Created: 03 Apr 2013 • Updated: 03 Apr 2013 | 5 comments

I have the usual problem of a Raid 5 with a too small system drive partition that I need to extend without it corrupting data on the other partitions.

Was going to buy Partition Magic but now this has been replaced by Norton Ghost which has now been replaced by Symantect System Recovery 2013 (or so Symantec website says)

However, both Symantec's Customer and Technical support lines could not help - so can someone with the product let me know if this tool can repartition Raid 5?

Thanks for the help!

Cheers

Paul

I doubt it very much, the only tool available for sizing a drive is Diskpart, I don't use raid so I am not sure whether Diskpart will do it.

It is a pity Symantec didn't add partition magic to the utilities section of SSR.

After Partition Magic disappeared, I started using Paragon Partition Manager.  I have never used it for a RAID configuration.  They have both a home and Professional versions.
