I'm running windows server 2003 R2, used as my file server. The total size of my C: is 7.81 GB w/ 24MB of free space. I need to increase my free space. I have run Disk Cleanup and there is 2.6GB of Temporary Files, can i delete these files w/o creating problems. I have already deleted the temporary internet files. I'm not sure what these Temporary files are.

It could be in a user's document and settings
Local Settings\
Application Data\

It is better to use a tool to remove them.

There are at least two areas that you can find Temp directories: %SystemRoot%\Temp, %USERPROFILE$%\Locals\Temp. The last one is there for every user profile that has loged into the computer. Since this is a server, I would not expect to see a lot of user profiles on the system. You can go into each of these and delete the items in each. You should know that you may not be able to delete everything since the system creates some temp files that are used during the active session, you can just skip those. If you arrange everything by date you should be able to delete everything that was created prior to today.
