Hi all,

A user called me saying that she cannot save anything on home drive cuz there is no space available. I know that there should be a few gig left. How can track what files have been saved lately to track who responsible for putting a huge file on home drive.

Are you sure the server is not using quotas?

May Also be worth doing disk cleanup, defrag, turning off windows indexing and deleting the index files and emptying things like temporary internet files, history, downloaded program files, windows temp folders etc.

Also if the computer is on a domain which utilizes roaming profiles, delete some of the profiles that belong to users which do not regularly use that machine.

You can also do an adanced search in windows for all files created within the last 2 weeks that are over 2MB (2048KB) and see what large files are chewing up the drive if quota's are in use, raise it temporarily until the user has deleted old files and done most if not all of the above.
