SBS2008 + C:\ partition very low on disk space

July 31st, 2010 - 02:42 pm ET by Jim | Report spam
Hi All,

Been to see someone who had a very early SBS2008 to do some service packing
etc etc as they had been having some issues.

When I got there the C:\ partition which is 65GB only has 5GB free disk
space left on it..

Weird thing is when you check out how much disk space the files and folders
are using this only amounts to 27GB !

So where pray tell is the other 33GB consumed ???

I've turned off all the hidden files and folders etc etc to view this so I
should be looking at everything as far as I can tell.

Anyone any ideas ? Obviously need to sort this before I embark on some
patching.

No Previous Versions configured for C:\

This is indeed the culprit

Is it t safe to just delete some of these log files ?

And why are they building up and can they be managed more effectively

You can go into the IIS console and turn off the WSUS IIS logs
