Ceating Server Disk Space
Posted on 2011-02-13
I am responsible for hundreds of servers across the world (new position), Domain Controllrs, Application Servers, and Interface Servers. Many of the Domain Controllers are being flagged (Orion Solar Winds) as running out of hard disk space (95%-99%). Most servers have 2 partitions (C:\ & D:\) with the OS on the C: drive and Applications on the D: drive. When these Domain Controllers were created some years ago the C: drive in most cases were partitioned with only 6GB. This is now maxing out and I have tried the following to free up some space;
Cleared down Temp directories
Deleted all local profiles (except All Users & Admin)
These partitions are running as Basic Disks (in Disk Mgmt) and I need to know if and how to convert to dynamic disks so that I can borrow space from the D: drives without causing any impact on services.
I would also like some advice on other ways to clear down data and hoping to achieve at least 20% Free Space because I can't even run any basic Housekeeping Tools such as Defrag etc.
All advice received with appreciation.
