Drive Space on Small Business Server 2003

We have a customer who is running out of free disk space on the ‘C’ drive of their SBS2003 server.

Are you able to suggest areas of the ‘C’ drive which could be prone to using large amounts of disk space i.e. IIS logs etc. and which can be deleted/trimmed accordingly.

Naturally, I do not wish to delete anything which is key to SBS2003 running smoothly.

Could the response to the above question also apply to SBS2008?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

Download the tree size from the below URL:
http://download.cnet.com/1770-20_4-0.html?query=TreeSize+Free&searchtype=downloads

and run on the server to find the folder taking large disk space.

Post the information of the folder

Microsoft pubilished a white paper sometime ago about freeing up space on Drive C, specific to SBS
LeeW's article is good, but not specific to SBS 2003.  The white paper will walk you through areas specific to SBS 2003
