   Is there any issues running Windows 2003 with a 200+ gig system partition, other than the amount of time it will take to defrag/chkdsk? The other partition is 200+ gigs as well.

    No.  You should be fine.

    Is there an advantage to running a more slim system partition considering that we only want the 3rd party data on the non-system partition?

    Accepted Solution

    I wouldn't make the C drive less than 40GB.  Give yourself plenty of systemdrive space for logfile and such, plus room to grow.

    Your D drive can be the rest - 160GB.

    That would be fine also.
