Windows 2003 - Windown Search/Indexer

Just curious if I need to be running Windows Search on my domain controller. It seems to be using a awful lot of disk space, with, as I see it, very little advantage.

It I want to shut it off.... is there anything to it, besides turning the service off?
(How do I recover my disk space?)

For your kind info, search will not take your disk space, but it adds load to your hdd for reading and writting. This in effect heats your hdd and causes slow performance.
So just disabled the service or make it manual.
