Low disk space on C SBS 2003

Last week and again today for the second time, I received alerts.
Last week said 'C' drive was down to 200 MB and today, down to 450 MB.
Up until last week, free space was about 2.3 GB it is now 1.87 GB.
I must stress, that we moved the page file last year, so it is only using max 500 MB from C.
Also, I've been through the log files and deleted most old.
The strange thing is that when I get onto the server, after a little while the space goes back up to 1.87 GB.
What's temporarily using it then releasing it? Please help.

You have another partition in your server? So you can move the temp folders to that partition. What size is your partition? or did you have sql or exchange running? There is a program called disk view that can tell you the size of any folder and file in your hard drive. Good Luck

Hello jasonbournecia,

if I have problems on C-drives of server I always use this tool to check:

Run the tool when you have 1.87Gb and also when it's less, you will see what is eating up the space.

Regards,

I would look into where the Shadow copy is saving to (if it is enabled).

Also have a read through this page here:
