Imagining: you enter an empty room that has nothing inside. The first day, you put several chairs, a bed and a table in this room. Then, you continue putting some followers, furniture and more other things in this room. Day after day, the room will become full and you cannot put even one thing inside. What will you do? You may throw away some old furniture, but the room will become full soon when you put some other things inside. At this time, you may think, if the room can become larger, you are able to put more things to this room without throwing away anything.

In fact, a disk partition like C drive on your Server SBS 2003 works in the same way. The more files you stored to a C drive the less free space it will have until it will be eaten up completely one day. At this moment, you also need to increase the size of C drive so that you can save more data.
