Partition Size Issues on Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2011-02-21
I inherited a Windows Server 2003 that had been repurposed as a terminal server. The C drive is only 12 GB and I'm constantly having issues with lack of storage...no surprise here I suppose.
I'd like to avoid rebuilding the server.
The curious thing is that I am only picking up about 8.4 GB of storage on the C drive but the OS is telling me I only have 300 MB of storage available. Not sure where the other 3 GB is. The page file is on the D drive and there is no shadowing turned on. I get this result through My Computer and TreeSize Free.
Any idea where the additional 3GB of space is?
Looking at the Dell SAS RAID Manager I see that the drive is configured as one large RAID 1(150GB). Windows reports that C and D are on the same basic disk. Dell has a partion moving tool. Has anyone used their tool for this? Is there an economical commercial tool that you would recommend?
