NT's Disk Administrator will allow you to do this with any other partition,
but not C because it is the system partition. In order to do what you're
wanting to do, you'd have to use Partition Magic, or something similar to

All of our NT servers are using no more than maybe 600 megs on drive C--all
websites, logs, etc. are on different partitions. Maybe you can move some
stuff from one drive to another instead of expanding C?
