Configure SCSI Drives with RAID 5

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

My HP computer has Windows Server 2003. I have configured everything into RAID Level 5 and 3X148GB SCSI Drives. It has 2 partitions such as, C: System and D: Data. My Server 2003 is a multi-server. It has one domain but serves two sites and it replicates AD with APN. My drive C always dismounts my database and has very low disk space. I was thinking that maybe I need to clear out some unnecessary files but after doing so, it still cannot get enough space. The system prompt asked me to reinstall a new SCSI Drive and make a new RAID Level 1. And it also suggested that I move my C partition into this new volume. Would it be a great idea if I wanted to restore drive C by making an image through the installation of Acronis software? And then my drive C partition will then be in the new volume. I will boot from the new RAID, then increases drive D and if it works I will then delete my drive C from my RAID 5. I needed some help in fixing my problem. Please if possible send me a step by step procedure of how to resolve this. Thank you in advance for helping me I would love to hear from you soon.

I will suggest that you do a cleanup on you C: drive. If your cleared unnecessary documents but you cannot find enough space still then there are supposedly files that are taking up space on that partition of the hard disk. They may be queued error messages or broken files that are stored by the system and therefore you cannot be able to see them.

What you will need to do to get rid of such files is the following:

  • On your computer click on start.
  • And then type 'disk cleanup' in the search box.
  • Locate the Disk Cleanup utility from the programs and click on it to open it.
  • Select the C: drive as the drive to cleanup, and then check all the files that you will want to get rid of.
  • Wait till the cleanup process finishes.
