Then you, Mark, stated in part:

To which I replied - that the gparted distro will quite nicely do NTFS 
resizes, based on the fact that I'd just done it last week on two SuperMicro 
servers using mirrored operating system drives. gparted, so far as I know is 
based on parted so I'd guess that documentation cited by Nat is out-dated.

Perhaps gparted has incorporated resizentfs or ntfsresize into its code, or is 
calling it, I don't know, but, the statements the two of you made above were 
didactically inaccurate. I wasn't trying to be argumentative, just pointing 
out that you were perhaps relying on old information.
