Because of ending diskspace and other hardware capacity we are in the progress of upgrading our infrastructure from Server 2003 R2 to Server 2008 R2 and Exchange 2007 SP1 to Exchange 2010.
In progress of upgrading to 2010 we will also be splitting Exchange and Primary DC (I know -_-), so exchange will have it's own hardware where diskspace won't be the question.
In order to upgrade to 2010 an upgrade to Exchange 2007 SP2 has to be performed. And that is where the headache starts:
The System has two differen partitions one for the system and installation Data (C), and one for Exchange Data files (D) (Storage Groups, QueueDB, QueueDBLog).
Now the System partition which is around 24GB has only 141MB free. Which (regarding) to the information I could gather is clearly not enough for the Exchange SP2 installation.
Are there any short term solutions I could try ? I noticed that the Windows folder already takes up around 18GB which clearly minimizes the possibilities to gather more space.
Thank you all for your help so far. I will update the list of items I could find according to your help.
$NTUinstallfolders under Windows\ 558MB
ie7updatesfolder under Windows\ 987MB
- Setting the Swap File to Zero on C since D already has a good sized swap file: 2095MB (very strange size)
Haargh this sounds like 5472 MB to me.
As I was sure I would have had a hard time trying to pick the "correct" answer. And some smaller advises in chat are not in the answers anyway. So I decided to give it to the answer which had the biggest part of the cake.
