I have currently setup a new Small Business Server 2003 Premium R2 server with hardware RAID 5.  There are 4 drives in the server giving me 408 GB of usable space.  The space is setup accordingly:

C: (boot partition): 20 GB

E: (Exchange Databases and transaction logs): 39 GB

F: (Company files): 349 GB

The server is acting as a file and print server in addition to hosting Exchange.  There are no sql databases running on the server.  I am losing about 100 MB per day of space on the C: drive.  The initial size of the paging file is 2070 MB and Maximun at 3090 for the paging file size.  No paging file sizes have not been set on the E and F partions.

Questiions that I have:

1) What is causing the 100 MB loss per day in drive space on C?

2) What is the best minimum and maximum page file settings for all three partitions.
