I have recently deleted some accounts from Active Directory and purged them from System Manager. How do I regain the server space. Or do I have to wait a certain amount of time?

Cheers

Quite Urgent as I am running low on space.

You mean you deleted user accounts?  Deleting user accounts will provide about 1k of disk space per user.  If you are out of disk space, removing user accounts is not going to do you any good.

I agree.

Move the page file to a different partition and delete the cache for IE, and set it to 25 MB in the Internet options.

Also there are plenty of things that can be deleted- All the Windows update uninstalls in the Windows directory are a start.

Anything over 60 days old can safely be deleted.

I hope this helps !
