Win2k3 SBS Server out of Hard drive space

win2k3 SBS server, no exchange, no website. OS runs out of hard drive space and froze. In the process another administrator profile was created with limited rights to do about anything. Can't seem to get around this. there are no other accounts with full admin  rights.

Can you boot into safe mode? Press F8 just before windows starts and select SAFE MODE from then menu.

What makes you think its running out of disk space - can you give more details?

Yes can boot into safe mode but same issues with trying to change anything. OS Hard drive space was down to nothing. Deleted some stuff and recovered about 2gb. Damage was done at that point.
