SBS2003 Losing Disk Space on C

Posted on 2009-04-29
Last Modified: 2012-05-06

I have a SBS2003 server with a space issue on the C Drive. The exchange databases reside on the D drive whilst the logs are on the C. Ive checked these and they are pretty static, no big changes in size. The space is reducing by about 1mb every 5 minutes.

How can I find whats responsible for taking the space on the C Drive?

Checked event log, nothing stands out.

    Thanks MS Warrior for responding but I think Ive found the problem - WSUS! The service had been downloaded and a heck of a rate. Ive now amended what it downloads and this has given back my space - wahoo!

    You can also move the WSUS content to your D drive
