I have a Dell PowerEdge 2850 Server that is running Windows Server 2003 R2 and it houses SQL2000 and Backup Exec., which is not being used at this time. The SQL2000 data is spread between both the C:drive and the F:Drive. I was told that there are 3 drives that are 40 gigs, 80 gigs and the last drive is 80 Gigs as well. Presently there is about 2 gigs left on the c: drive and our client would like for all the data to be on one drive. The issue, I'm being told, is that there are two raids here, one is a raid 2 and the other is raid 3. I did not even know that you could have such a configuration on the same server...remember that there are two drives: c: drive and e:drive. Again the C: drive only have 2 gigs left out of 20 gigs. and the E: drive has a capacity of 47 gigs with 17 gigs being used at the moment and SQL database sits on the C:drive and partial on the E:drive.
I think that what we are trying to accomplish here is to either get another drive or make room for additional space on either C:drive and/or move the data over to the E:drive. Under the C:drive, and specifically under the DATA folder, there only seems to be about 4 gigs of "data".
Your thoughts please and also include pros/cons of the suggestion.
