    Hi Folks

    I have a 1.1TB raid 5 volume on a Dell PERC 3/di with a 600GB primary partition, the remainder of space is unallocated. I wish to extend the 600GB partition to 900GB but when use the 'increase free space wizard' the program crashes.

    Here are the steps i'm performing:

    Create logical partition of 300GB from unallocated space using disk director, no drive letter assigned.
    commit the changes, partition appears as expected.
    start the 'increase free space wizard'
    Choose the existing 600GB partition
    Choose the newly created 300GB partition to extend onto

    Program 'locks partition' then 'analyzes partition' its at this point the program crash's out, it closes and no changes have been made.

    I would apprechiate any help you can give me.
