I am running SBS 2003 Premium with ISA 2004.
I have a 15k scsi 18gb drive for the OS and a RAID-5 array for the data.
I am trying to remove or reduce any unneeded files for space and/or defrag reasons.

I have come across 2 "identical" 400mb files and would like to know if I need to keep one/both of them.

C:\Windows\Debug\isalog.bin (400,609, 03/15/06) and C:\Windows\Debug\isalog.bak (400,609, 03/15/06)


Can I delete/move one or both of these files?

Thanks,
Slator

Also, in case there are some data folders you hadn't moved to your RAID array...

Jeff,
Thanks for the quick, accurate response.
I agree with the guy about 800mb+ of space on a C:\ drive for a log file.
Seems like MS may not totally "trust" ISA 2004.

Thanks again,
Slator

P.S.  I already have the "Moving Data Folders for Windows Small Business Server 2003" document.
        I think it was you that provided it to me on a SBS defrag question a few weeks ago.

No problem... and at least I'm consistent with my answers!  :-)
