totally confused here.
when i go into my computer on the 2008 machine it says that over 70 percent of my c drive is filled.

200 gig of 250 filled

when i select all the folders in the c drive and do properties... it says only 18 gig filled
the information store is on the d drive so it shouldn't be any exchange information.

any ideas on why im getting to opposing pieces of information regarding space used on c drive?

this machine is fairly new and shouldnt have a whole lot on c drive.
only 8 months old

First, I'd recommending running WinDirStat (www.windirstat.info) to get a better look at your file system.  Do you have any shadow copies running on your C drive?

You might want to check your log files on the server, probably have never been flushed out when doing a backup etc so it gets bloated.  You can enable circular logging to help clear up some of those log files.

Check event viewer to make sure there are no errors with HDD
 Then run chkdsk on the c: drive
