    How can i use 2 Hard disc drives?

    Hello,

    I have a server with Windows2003 Server Web edition. There is Plesk Control Panel installed on the sever.
    The server came with 1 physical hard disc but it has been seperated to 2 virtual drives( C and D).

    now Drive C is almost full and i want to use drive D to host the sites as well.

    How can i use 2nd drive continuously? Do i have to set up the vhosts path on plesk or IIS?


    Regards,

    Sounds to me like you would be better off removing the virtual partition and making C larger - you can use something like partitionmagic to do this I think.

    The server came with Windows server 2003 installed. I dont have the CD with it. Im just scared to modify the partitions...
    The person who installed the windows set up 12 GB on drive C and 61 GB on drive D. That's why i must find the way to use drive D for the hosting clients as soon as possible...

    I havent used windows for a long time, but certainly it used to be possible to resize partitions without downtime or reinstalls using partitionmagic.

    Thanks a lot for the reply.

    I will try to find out how to do it with partitions.

    but anyways i would also like to learn if it is possible to define another hosting path in another drive on Plesk 7.5.5 CP.

    hmmm...
    there is no raid controller at the moment on the server.
    and also, the drives now are 1 physical drive but seperated to 2 virtual drives.

    Access Admin tools/disk management. Activate the partition so it shows up as a physical drive. Depending on how it was set-up it is possible to use the partition.
