2003 SBS System partition out of disk space due to hundreds (possibly thousands) of 'cstxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.tmp' files being created but don't know why
Posted on 2006-06-02
I am trying to pinpoint what is creating these files but if I try to explore C: it will not display folders or files, I guess because there are so many of these spurios .tmp files in the root. I have attempted to delete them through a command prompt (del cst*.tmp) but it appears it will run for ages, although I've managed to regain several hundred MB's and hopefully prevent the server from crashing.
The server is an HP Proliant ML110 G3 running Windows 2003 SBS SP1.
Can anybody guide me to what the problem may be and a solution please, for which I should be very grateful.
