Windows Server 2008 Core Edition needs space.

One of our servers is currently running low on space. The VM's stopped working and can't be started because there isn't enough space. Are there any files in the Windows Server 2008 Core Edition Hypervisor that I can delete so I can create just enough space to start the VM's?

So far I have turned Windows Update off.
But I need just a little bit of extra space to get them running.
Any ideas?

If you have other users that have logged onto the server in the past, you can delete their profiles.
You can run C:/Windows/System32/compcln.exe to remove data required to uninstall any service packs.

Thanks for the info people!

All the comments helped me to clear some space to start the VM's. However the amount of free space kept shrinking rapidly and finaly resulted in a system halt. The problem was caused by the pagefile that was growing rapidly. (somehow it got over 40 gigs and kept growing and growing) I have set the pagefile to a few gigs and everything works like a charm now.

yes you should configure a maximum size, in order to go around such cases
