The System Volume Information folder is exceeding 7.29gb on C drive


I have a server running Windows 2003 Standard edition with 10gb on the system C drive.
Currently I have 195mb free and cannot afford to delete/move anymore data.
The System Volume Information folder is exceeding 7.29gb.
I was wondering is there any chance I could delete/move all or part of that folder to free up some space on C drive?
Alternatively if you have another solution my problem I would be happy to hear it.

Furthermore, if I was to set a limit for shadow copies to 3gig would that have any impact on the server in its current state?

Do you have shadow copies enabled?  If so, are they stored on c:?

If so, disable them (you will lose all previous copies), then change the location to store the copies and reenable them.

You could also access another storage area by creating a mount point on the c drive. There are some limitations with shadow copies - see here  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;812547
