Forgive the long story.. hopefully it gives you the details needed to help me.
SBS 2011 server, original setup made the mistake of having Shadow Copies on their C drive with no apparent limits, and it has been running for two weeks and subsequently filled the C drive.
During that time SharePoint Foundation SP1 was installed. But the second half of the update as described in this blog http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2011/07/06/potential-issues-after-installing-sharepoint-foundation-2010-sp1.aspx
was not run.
Client realized the shadow copies was the source of the problem and disabled Shadow Copies, WITHOUT deleting the old shadow copies from within the shadow Copies interface.
Now I have been introduced to a harddrive that is full of what I believe are orphaned Shadow Copy files somewhere in the drive taking up over 50% of the drive space.
Where can I find the files? Can they be erased by hand? Is there a utility to clean these up? Anything helps.
