Estimating the Disk Space Required for Upgrading
Before you perform an upgrade of Microsoft® SQL Server™ version 6.5 to SQL Server 2000, ensure that there is available disk space. This is important if you intend to perform either a one-computer or a two-computer upgrade.
The SQL Server Upgrade Wizard estimates the disk space necessary to upgrade the SQL Server 6.5 server to SQL Server 2000. The wizard examines the current SQL Server 6.5 installation and estimates the amount of disk space the SQL Server 6.5 data will occupy in SQL Server 2000.
You can estimate:
- The size of SQL Server 2000 databases.
- The size of SQL Server 2000 logs.
- The amount of disk space required for tempdb.
Note The SQL Server Upgrade Wizard estimates the disk space required; it cannot give an exact requirement.
