How to Reduce Profile size of Administrator Profiel

I am running out of space on the c drive of my SBS2003 server.

I noticed that the documents and settings of the administrator are almost 3 GB
Most of this is in the local settings.

Is there any way to shrink this?

Thanks,

check ...\Local Settings\Temp; sometimes a lot of files get dumped there and never get cleared out.  Clear your browser cache and Recycle Bin.

Hi

Install this nice bit of software (free)
http://www.jam-software.com/freeware/index.shtml

It will list the amount of space per directory in the folder you ask it to scan, very good for finding out where the files are held.

Once have found the files, list the main ones here and we can help.

Also, you run the cleanup agent from the start menu to clean up any temporary files.
It may also be necessary to move the pagefile from the system drive to another drive on your system, this is useful in times when you are running out of disk space.

go to the properties of the IE and delete the browsing history, also click settings on temp internet files and reduce the disk space to use.

also tidht click your c:drive and run disk clean up...this will free up more space on your c drive

I found some outlook OST files on the drive
under neath the administrator local settings application data microsoft outlook
that are fairly large 700 mb
But my exchange store is on a different drive
plus these files haven't been accessed since august 22nd

THink it's safe to delete?

THanks,

Hi

OSTs are profiles that exist if a user has installed/opened Outlook on the server and the OST has cached a copy of the exchange store.
It would be best to back these up to an external USB drive or write it to CD for backup.

You then can safely remove these files.

Well we did install outlook on there for a while because we were trying to run verizon synch service off of our server which didn't work anyways
so this shoudl free up quite a bit of space
