Question about Dell PowerEdge 2500 Server
I have a RAID5 system. My problem is some years ago i've defined the C drive with only 4GB (where i have OS W2000svr, anti virus server, backup software, and a few minor things), and now with the Microsoft Updates i don't have enough space. This situation is as follow:
C drive capacity 4 GB - free 50 MB
D drive capacity 63 GB - free 15 GB
I already run cleanup drive, and delete as much i could.
How can i "move" free space to drive C, or rebuild the virtual drives without re-installing everything ? (if possible)
Thank You. Luís
You can relocate any my documents folders to the D:\ drive using a right mouse click and properties to enter a new directory. When you are logged onto the appropriate account.
If you have items on the desktop (data) you can relocate them to a folder on the D:\ drive and place a shortcut to them on the desktop -- same functionality but the disk usage changes drives.
You can uninstall specific applications and reinstall them on the D:\ drive
You may be able to reassign the temporary internet folders depending on the version of Internet Explorer to the D:\ drive to reduce use of C:\ Likewise Temp if you change the JCW value.
If you are using older versions of Internet Explorer that have been updated you may be able to remove backups using the add/remove programs scenario -- do not backoff current versions there are buttons in some versions of IE to remove the backups created when updating.
Using add/remove programs to eliminate items not used. If this is a true server -- items like calculator and numerous accessories could be removed. There may be additional unused programs and services that can be removed to buy some additional space.
Anti-Virus software often keeps backup copies of signature files -- reviewing your software in that area could provide additional files that could safely be removed.
I do not know if windows 2000 had the indexing service. If it does is maintains a second directory and space of the search service is not required eliminating the associated data can reduce C:\ drive space requirements -- if necessary the associated files can be relocated to the D:\ drive.
In the end all of the above may not be much space but it could be some.
