I have a Dell PowerEdge 830 running Windows Server 2003, and the C: drive was originally configured to only have 10 GB. Recently, I have installed some other useful application programs to the computer, thus C: drive is running out of space in Server 2003. I’ve noticed there are other drives which have much unused space left and an unallocated space. Thus, I’m endeavoring to find the right way to extend C drive’s capacity without losing data.
It is believed that most computer users have received the warning dialogue box “You are running out of disk space on Local Disk(C:). To free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files, click here…”. Viewing the alert, different users holds different attitudes towards it. However, users might as well keep in mind that a minimum amount of available disk space on the system drive is the premise of keeping the machine in normal running state. Generally speaking, to gain optimal performance on Windows, 200 MB threshold is a must.
As mentioned above, it is indeed important to free up disk space in drive which gets Low Disk Space warning, and extending system drive is an excellent measure.
