Hard drive full - how do I delete stuff????
Posted on 2001-08-02
At work we currently have a 9Gig hard drive which is used as a data historian for our plant control system via Wonderware InSQL. The problem we have is that the hard drive is full and we can't delete any old files as there is no room for the recycle bin to hold the data to be deleted (or so I'm told by out IT dept.) Is there anyway in which to delete the old data (or any other files I don't need) so I can get some disk drive space back. The software being run is Windows NT, with Wonderware InSQL. There are no utilities in the Wonderware software which allows me to delete data now the hard drive is full.
Most of this info comes from the bloke who should have been looking after the server with the hard drive in it, so I'm only going by what he has said. If anybody has any ideas then please help!!! Or if the info about the inability to delete files due to a full hard drive is wrong then please let me know and I'll kill the lying git!
