Running Disk Space
Posted on 2008-10-08
I have a Dell server that is running out of disk space. There are two partitions,
C: Drive 12 GB with 2 GB's of free space
D: Drive - 192 GB with 148 GB of free space.
I would like to know is there a way to make adjustments to the partition sizes without losing data. I would like to increase the C: Drive by 30 GB and Reduce the D: Drive by 30 GB.
I have the updates for the server on hold right now because of the lack of space on the C: Drive. I cannot fix my SQL 2000 msdb until I can run the required updates (from what I have read).
I had to free up some space on the C: Drive because I had some errors caused by this issue. The SQL msdb database has been marked (Suspect) and I suspect this is part of the cause. The other databases seem to be working but not necessarily correctly.
