cloning hdd's

Specs: SBS 2003, Dual Xeon/4gb

New to 2003. Got a 150gb hdd, partitioned to give a 3gb os partition and a 147gb data partition. I need to change the size of the os partition by a few gbs and thought the easiest way to do this is cloning the hdd with acronis to a 500gb hdd and letting it change the partition size by proportion.

Never had a problem with any other windows os, is there anything i would hae to be careful of like with linux using GRUB to sort the MBR etc out?

I think the easiest way to accomplish what it is you want to do would be to use Partition Magic or another program like it. I believe there's a free program that does the same job (ie: allows resizing of partitions).

This would be a lot cleaner and easier than cloning.
