Hello All,

Last Monday I had over 50gigs of harddrive space left for our Exchange server and this morning it's all gone.

The Exchange Folder is the same size in Gigs but for some reason I lost a ton of hard drive space.

I have no schedules running to do anything nor any folders shared for people to access.

Any help would be great!

Thanks,
Matt

Run Windirstat to check where your space has gone.  www.windirstat.info

If you're still unable to find the phantom space check and see if you have shadow copies enabled on that drive.

If you have a particular user that uses a ton of space, have them move their mailbox to another shared folder on the server or on their local computer. I would only recommend the shared folder for backup reasons, do you have a hard drive on the server used for shared storage?

It was a folder in the Syster32/Log file that had taken over 48gigs, I found a website talking about it, removed the logs.
