We're running SBS 2003 SP2 and are having issues with low disk space alerts on our server. This morning I logged onto the server via remote desktop and there were 1.5GB free. Within 10 minutes there were only 199KB free!.  Can Remote Desktop suck disk space from the server's C drive?  Thanks.  Michael

Hi,
possibly not. It is not possible, that somebody has copied files to the server?
Check the logs also:
search for *.log

Run www.windirstat.info to find out what's on the drive and what's using so much space.
