Reserve disk space

Allocating some reservewd disk space when building a new data/file server provides you with a handy buffer.

Building a new data/file server? Keep some disk space in reserve. Allocate appropriately for OS and apps/data, but keep the last 10%-15% in a RESERVED partition/volume (don't leave it unpartitioned). Then you've got a buffer between running out of disk space and getting those new drives in. And you can also add the space to which ever partition needs it, without having to borrow from Peter to expand Paul.
