We are losing space on our C drive constantly. I have looked at logs checked all I can think of and run disk clean up. I can get free space just over 1 gb but it only holds a day or so. The trash shows that it has something in it but when I open it I see nothing listed. When I pick empty trash I get "Are you sure you want to delete Windows" If I say yes I get Error Deleting File or Folder with the message "Cannot delete 0063006f006d002e006100700070006c0065002e00410064006400720065007300730042006f006f006b: The file name you specified is not valid or too long. Specify a different file name."

Any help would be great. We are starting to see the server lag and users  getting server not responding type messages. Sorry to not have specific messages but the users have not been logging only reporting after the fact.
