2000 server

I was wondering if anyone could shed any light on this........
 
I have a 2000 server that is partitioned with a c and d drive....The d drive holds any folders that grow on a regular basis.  It has two databases that continually grow.  No problem there.
 
However the problem is that the C:(root) is loosing drive space every day.  I am loosing about 4-5 mb of space daily and cannot figure out why.  I have went thru each C: drive folder and cannot find any red flags.  What the heck is going on, any ideas?

Right Click on the C: drive and select Search, under search options select Date, and then set the Modify date to 3 or 4 days, click on search. See what files it brings up, this should show all files that are added or modified. If this is a webserver don't forget about the log files, etc... that can be growing.
