    one of the conditions quoted in the MS Press book;

    "the volume is extended into contiguous unallocated space (adjacent free space) that follows the existing volume (as opposed to coming before it)."

    I don't understand the before and after bit.... the only *thing* i can reference in my mind is the drive letters i.e D is after C.

    I think it means that if you have a volume that is physically in the middle of the disk, even if there is empty space on either side of it (perhaps if you deleted the volume before it), if you expand the volume it will only expand into space physically after the volume, not before it.

    I tend to use volumes in UNIX - we set the volume up with a starting point then use the space to the next starting point.
