SBS2K Running out of disk space
Posted on 2004-08-23
i have a PDC running SBS2K with 2 partitions on a RAID5 configuration (3 32GB SCSI HDD). I have C: E: and M:
C: partition size is 14.6GB and
E: partition size is 19.5GB (this partition is used for files and folders for all users)
M: partition size is the same as C: - as far as i understand M: shouldn't even be there as it contains Exchange mailboxes (correct?)
The problem is that C: is now down to 400MB of free space - i have asked all users to delete 'deleted' and 'sent' items from their outlook to try and increase the available space but it hasn't helped. I thought that Exchange mailbox data is stored effectively in C:
I have also uninstalled all programs from C: and moved them across to E: already.
The disk defrag utility doesn't run properly unless i have at least 15% of disk space free and Exchange keeps having problem as if i go below 200MB of free space the MTA stacks deosn't start.
How can i increase the space of C: - i have got 8GB free in E: - is there any way to merge portion of E: in C:????
