    2003 server with 3-63gb drives in Raid 5. Added 2-73gb via open manage and are ready to go.

    Go into Disk management and I see C: 30gb NTFS Healthy primary, F: data 106gb NTFS Healthy primary, and now 136gb unallocated.

    I need to add the unallocated to my f: data.

    1st should I partition it as extended?

    2nd can I add it to my F: data drive with diskpart or use some other software?

    Have setup and installed many servers, but never added drives after the unit was in service.

    Will any of this cause me to lose data? This is my domain/exchange server.
