Having problems with your Dell PowerEdge 2500 Server ?

Lack of space on C drive

\015 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:\015\012C drive capacity 4 GB - free 50 MB\015\012D drive capacity 63 GB - free 15 GB\015\012I already run cleanup drive, and delete as much i could.\015\012How can i "move" free space to drive C, or rebuild the virtual drives without re-installing everything ? (if possible)\015\012Thank You. Lu\303\255s\015

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.
\015\012
\015\012If 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.
\015\012
\015\012You can uninstall specific applications and reinstall them on the D:\\ drive
\015\012
\015\012You 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.
\015\012
\015\012If 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.
\015\012
\015\012Using 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.
\015\012
\015\012Anti-Virus software often keeps backup copies of signature files -- reviewing your software in that area could provide additional files that could safely be removed.
\015\012
\015\012I 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.
\015\012
\015\012In the end all of the above may not be much space but it could be some.

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-FRV26 series laptop that has just started shutting itself down and restarting after windows has been up for only a minute or two. I have taken the unit apart & cleaned everything thinking it may be just dirty and overheating. No success, BTW it was not very dirty after all but as long as I was in there I give it a good cleaning anyway. The unit will run in Safe Mode, but the CD drive will not run to start the Windows XP disk for troubleshooting and or repair from that. Hav
