Make action plan for future growth of server name[company domain]database and
drive requirement for next 12 month. Action plan should be very clear
and correct.. Your objective should be as below point.

1. Size of new database backup drive.
2. Size of new database drive for future growth.
3. How to perform the activity, if you will get all required drive letters ?

Note: required one drive for Data files and another Drive for backups
1. current data files should move to new drive1.[100 gb]requied
2. current backup should generate to new drive2.[ 200 gb]required


Thanks

There's not enough information here to give you a step-by-step action plan to handle database growth. I don't see the indications for how fast the database is growing. There's no indications that you have monitoring in place for tracking the size of the database. I'd suggest starting there.

Also, this sounds a little like homework. If so, you need to do it yourself.

Change your backup jobs to use the new location, use alter database with the MOVE clause and then move your DB files. Details are in BoL.

Action plan: steps you will take. So, what steps will you take? List them. There's your action plan.

OK, that makes a little more sense. First things first, make sure you have monitoring in place to ensure you know when the drives are getting full. Plot this over time so you can project out to make semi-accurate estimates of when you need a new drive.

Then it's like Gail says, for backups, you just have to change the location in your backup process and then validate that your backups are still working. Done. For the database files it's the commands she says, outline the steps. It's not hard. Write it all down. Organize it logically. Heck, when you get it all together, submit it as an article for Steve to publish here.
