SnapDrive LUN Resizing

Can Snapdrive 6.x resize luns that were created with previous versions of Snapdrive?

I can't speak for all versions, but I've just upgraded a box from SD5 to 6.0.2 and it can indeed re-size the LUNs created with the older version.

Thanks for the response Chris.

By resize, do you mean grow, or shrink?

ChrisHolloway

Sorry, grow.  My test was on Windows 2003, so I can't shrink them anyway.

And yes -- definitely can (and with W2k8, SnapDrive works with Windows to allow LUN shrinking in a nice graphical way).

Andrew,

Just for clarification. You were able to shink LUNs with Snapdrive 6.x on W2k8 servers that were created with Snapdirve 5.x?
