Server 2003 SP2 HDD fills up until I reboot the system then it clears out 4gb.

Every other day the HDD fills up and I have to reboot the server. Once I reboot it frees up 4gb of space.

I have done all updates, defrags, disk cleanups.

I cannot figure out where the data is that is filing it up or why it is filling up.

Please help!!!

Usually the Exchange database logs which fill Exchange log drives

You can check which drive is being used for storage group logging via the Exchange management console

Exchange storage group logs are cleared at the end of a full backup - are your backups running OK?

You can enable circular logging which clears logs shortly after they are commited to the database, however, you will not be able to perform incremental backups if you do this.

It cannot be the page file as I have already shrunk the pagefile on the system drive to a max of 512mb. I have also create a seperate page file on a larger logical drive.

This system is server 2003, not SBS. THere is no exchange.
