Forest Domain Trust - hit on disc space?

I'm in process of setting up a forest domain trust - it just occurred to me that one of the DC's is very low on disc space - however, I'm planning on demoting that DC anyway

Question is if I set up the trust (using another DC) is there a hit on disc space at all?  I'm thinking maybe something in AD replicating?

Depends upon the size of the trusted AD.  I daresay the impact will not be large.  

If I remember correctly, most queries are redirected unless you opt for the DC to be a GC too.  

If not a GC, there should be negligible disk space impact, but queries may be slow or not work at all depending upon end users connectivity to the foreign forest's DC's
