So we might have partitioned system drive with 32G, that's enough for Server 2003; after weeks, we found that the system runs well, so there's no worry on disk space shortage.
However, Server 2003 becomes to show low disk space alert in months, after analyzing, we found no other files are downloaded to C Drive, it's the log file and temporary file that consumed our free space.
