SharePoint content databases grow very rapidly when used in document imaging system or in file share replacement scenarios. With this in mind it is important to consider growth and overhead factors when determining how much content will eventually be stored in a given content database.

Use the following formula to calculate Content DB size.

Low:  1.2 * [Raw Storage Size] = ContentDB Size  
High: 1.5 * [Raw Storage Size] = ContentDB Size

If possible, separate each data file to exist on separate logical units consisting of unique physical disk spindles
