All,

Quick question regarding leaving minimum hard drive space on a drive...

Is there a recommended amount of hard drive space that should be left free on a storage only server drive, ie on a 1tb drive leave 1 gb free?

or does it not matter?

TIA,

AL

It would help to know what Operating System the sever is running.

It's generally recommended to have at least 10% of the drive free at all times. This will reduce load times, and wear and tear on the drives.
