c:\ is full and adding a 2nd cpu

new customer with a ml 150 g2. 4 sata hard drives hooked up to the sata raid controller. they have less than 200 megs on the c: drive and there isnt anything i can delete or move to another drive. what is the best way to fix this? i need to find out how the raid is setup. i am hoping that the c and d partitions are on one drive and the e drive is the raid. how do i look at the raid setup?
it is only using one cpu now. do i need to install the exact kind of cpu or can the speeds be different? i am assuming that i can just plugin the new cpu and thats it.

Re: c:\ is full and adding a 2nd cpu

I would say the easiest way would be
backup and insert bigger HDDs and restore

the other way would be

same as here

Re: c:\ is full and adding a 2nd cpu

raid card is adaptec 26105A with c: and d: on one drive ( drive 0 ) and not part of the raid array luckily. its a maxtor 80 gig sata drive. my thinking is to buy a bigger hard drive and partition it with a bigger c: and d: and then copy over the c: to c: and then the d: to d:. we have a little black box called a disk jockey that can perform this. sound right?

the first cpu is a xeon 3 Ghz and i want to add another one. does it have to be identical to the first cpu and do you have the specs on the cpu? socket etc? thanks

Re: c:\ is full and adding a 2nd cpu

the overview on the ml150 g2 says it can have either a 1mb cache or a 2mb cache. how can i find out which chip is in there without pulling the cpu out? my computer show the xeon 3 ghz but it doesnt say the cache size.

also, do i have to use a hard drive that hp says to use or can i just use any sata drive and just mount it into the hd holder plug thing? thanks
