SBS 2003 Partition Sizes
Posted on 2004-09-17
I am currently running SBS 2003 on a RAID 5 (hardware) server. I have two partitions ... C:(OS) is 10 GB and D:(DATA) is 24 GB. I have set all Exchange DBs to store on the D: drive.
My problem is that C: is down to 400 MB, and seems to be decreasing everyday. I cannot determine what is eating up the disk space. I thought about the paging file, which is set for initial 1920 MB and max 3840 MB (I have 1.25 GB RAM). Should I decrease this file size?
I have PowerQuest Volume Manager 2.0 which I used for Windows Server 2000, but it will not run on SBS 2003. So I cannot resize the partitions at this point.
I'd like for all databases, programs, etc to be located on D: drive. We only have 12 employees here so I figured 36GB should be plenty of space.
Any idea what is causing my disk shortage, and any suggestions to fix the problem? The lack of Volume Manager is now restricting me. Any other tools to resize partitions?
