    I recently imaged my server onto 3 larger SCSI hard drives in a RAID 5 array. The max size of the container is 136 GB's and the total of the partitions is about 60 GB's +/-. I now have about 78 GB of unallocated space. All partitions are basic and I am having a problem even formatting the unallocated space. I did try the Acronis Disk Director Trial and it would not let me modify this free space. I then went to disk management and tried to format this space and i am not given the option. The OS of this server is Win2k Server. I need to resize all 3 partitions. This is a Dell PowerEdge 440 server and using FAST (Flexible Array Storage Tool). Also, this is hardware RAID (5)

    Hello Trihimbulus,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    Please accept my apologies for the delay with the response.

    Please download the latest version of Acronis drivers, install it with disabled logging and see if the problem still persists.

    If the problem still persists then enable logging by running the Acronis drivers installation package once again, reproduce the problem and collect the c:\snapapi.log file.

    Please create Acronis Report and Windows System Information as it is described in Acronis Help Post.

    Please submit a request for technical support. Attach all the collected files and information to your request along with the step-by-step description of the actions taken before the problem appears and the link to this thread. We will investigate the problem and try to provide you with the solution.

    Thank you.
