I have a Windows 2000 Server system that is running out of HD space quickly. A couple of days ago it had Gigabytes free (can't remember how much) and in a matter of days, space if running out by the minute. I need to find out what is going on. Seems like there may be an infection from a virus. When I tried using housecall (trend's online virus check) the updates failed to install due to a file denying access to copy the files. I downloaded Trend's server protect enterprise suite and am scanning now. I don't know if this will continue to scan successfully, cause I am down to 70 MB of free space. Can someone please recommend something or instruct me if they heard of this before.q

This is urgent and needs to be rectified asap, so all help is appreciated. Please help!

Thanks in advance
