Shadow Copy disk space (2003)

By joncr ·
I'm planning the partitioning on a new Win 2003 implementation and need to know the sort of compression ratio you get when planning disk space requirements.

That is, If I have 20GB of files, for example, and want to keep 3 shadow copy versions at all times (last night, yesterday and last week) what sort of disk space should I allow for?

Can anyone find a link or let me know out of experience of their implementation what I should be planning for?

Windows 2003 - at least a 10GB partition for the system I think will fit your needs best. For your files shadow copies, you can use whatever drive space you know that can handle your needs.
But be aware about the limitations of shadow copy!
