    Hello, guys how are you doing?

    In my company the server that we have is "HP Proliant DL380" which is DHCP and it has two primary partition Drive ' C' capacity= 39.0GB, free space = 18.6GB. Drive 'D' capacity = 164GB, free space = 155GB. this partition was done by some one before i goined to the company. but if i were, at least i would chose drive 'D'. Right now what i am trying to say is, in this server we have SQL server 2005 is installed and applications such as VB6 windows application, .NET windows application and Web Application are Running. ( softwares, for reception, Accounting, HR, cashier, Medical Record, department, SMS.....) and also Norton antivirus-Corparate edition. take a look for the following Active Directory is restored in C:\windows:\NTDS

    1. Ed0000D.log = 10,240kb
    2. edb.chk = 8kb
    3. edb.log = 10,240kb
    4 edbtemp.log = 2,048kb
    5. ntds.dit = 12,304kb
    6. res1.log = 10,240kb
    7. res2.log = 10,240kb
    8. temp.edb = 2,064kb

    I have the following questions

    1. Does AD restored in ntds.dit file only? What about there other files in there? What is the most important AD file need to take care?
    2. What capacity do I need for AD restored file?
    3. What should I do after this HDD full? Is it possible to transfer AD file in to Drive "D"?

    Please guys help me I need to know more information about AD files?
