    How much space require to Install SQL 2005 default instance and named instance respectively


  2. aki_aki New Member

    The SQL Server 2005 database components require between 95 and 300 MB of disk space, depending on the specific options chosen. A typical installation requires 250 MB of disk space.

    If you choose to install SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services, you will require an additional 50 MB of disk space for a minimal installation, or 130 MB for a typical installation.

    If you choose to install SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services, you will require an additional 50 MB of disk space for Report Server, and 30 MB for Report Designer.

    If this is for test purpose you can be better to have 2gb as you can play with code examples, if it is for a production basis then better to have standard sizes according to your environment.
