Hi Vicki
That is really an impossible question to answer, but you should really
ensure that you have at least 110% of the largest Store size available for
maintenance tasks.

Hi all 

I hope this doesn't sound like a idiot question - but 
What is the best amount of free hard drive space needed for Exchange 2000
server to operate at its optimum performance? 

Should it have 1/4 of the hard drive free - 1/8th - at what point can you
say - this (lack of hard drive space) is definitely going to slow down the
server and it's time to move it to a larger drive?
