Hi all!

Hope you can help me here, I work for a small company and we don't have an IT guy to deal with issues like this! (Company very tight with money!!) so I have been left with the job.

The problem the company has is the C:drive on the server is running low on memory.

The server is running Windows 2003 SBS

The server is a HP Compaq Xeon CPU 2.80ghz - 1Gb RAM

I looked on Disk Management and it has these stats:-


C: drive
831 MB - Free space

D:Drive (Data)
57.82 GB NTFS
21.34GB - Free space

I have done a Disk Frag, Disk Cleanup and Delete old files.

Can I buy more memory and add it to the C:drive? (My friend said that I have probably got Hot swapable disks)

Is there any other options?

Thank you for reading and any help would be appreciated!

Memory won't help. You need a bigger hard drive.
Then you use a utility such as Norton Ghost to clone everything on your drive C over to the new drive.

If you have hot swappable disks you can just add another disk to it and this will give you more memory.
