Add more disk space to a Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2015-01-07
First of all I am not a network admin but a developer so the back office hardware is not my cuppa tea. I am however tasked now to find a solution for one of our servers (on the server rack) that is running out of space and causing problems for a site running on there.
Server disk size 34GB
Available free space 10 GB
OS Windows Server 2003 R2
This is running only one website that is live and critical to business. During holiday period it run out of space bringing the site down. The web site/portal will be rewritten this year so we need this server maintained for one more year.
What I would like help with is the easiest and most cost effective way to increase the disk size. Moving the site to another is too risky. I am also aware of Windows Server 2003 support from Microsoft coming to an end in April but it is not worth moving to a new OS as we will throw away that server once the new site is written
Please let me know of any details needed that I missed.
