Hard Disk Space

Hi,

I currently have 700MB of storage space left on my C drive. (SBS2003)
Out of a total of 7.5GB. Something like 1GB is compressed.
Is this okay? Or do I need to invest in more space?

Thanks.

7.5GB is tight.  Have you moved all of the data files off your C: drive?  (http://sbsurl.com/movedata)

Have you moved your pagefile off of the C: drive?

Doing that would certainly free up space, but I wouldn't want to see an SBS System Partition with less than 12GB, minimum.  The lack of space available will slow down your server imensely.  Because currently, you don't even have enough room to run defrag.

Personally, I would buy a much, much larger hard drive and use imaging software like Acronis TrueImage or Noton Ghost to mirror your existing hard drive onto a maxxed out partition on your new hard drive.
