I am on Windows 2003 Server

My C Drive tends to be getting filled up. I have a folder in the C Drive \ WINDOWS folder, of which consumes about 1GB or more.

The folder is : C:\WINDOWS\$hf_mig$
In this folder has got many KB folders. Can this be deleted?

What else can I delete from the WINDOWS Folder.

I noticed in the Windows Folder, there are many $uninstall$ directories, which are blue in color. Can this be deleted.

What files can I actually delete from the Windows folder to make up space.

I know further disk space is needed, but at this point, what can I delete to create space?
