Windows Server 2008

We are looking for a small program to run to clean up the temp files from a windows 2008 Server.
It has a 30GB OS partition and we are trying to find what is eating up all the hard drive space.
I have ran across a couple options so far.
Install the Desktop Experience - this will enable the disk clean up utility like on windows xp

Install - http://www.stevengould.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=29&Itemid=223
I am not sure about this program

Have you used anything like treesize to get an idea of what is using disk space today and compare it to treesize report at a later time when the drive fills again?

Treesize free edition is still out there, and will analyze local disks only. Ccleaner is a program that performs routine temp file cleanup, etc.

Minor note but if you have Symantec Backup Exec installed the catalog files can eat up a LOT (many GB) of space.  You can relocate them or set it so they don't store things forever.

Found the problem using tree size

hyberfil.sys

This file will be the same size as the amount of RAM you have installed. Disabling the hibernation using the command line.

powercfg.exe -h off
or
powercfg.exe /h off
