  • I tried to do an easy remedy and build a new server. It seems servers are built with a default of 30G C drives. How can I get the C drive to be 120G on a new server and I will just use that from scratch?

  • Hi,

    I dont think there is a way to increase the drive size, but you can add another drive and move data to it.

    What are you using the servier for? What do you have installed on it?

    Regards
