SBS 2003 Sever ran out of space and will not restart
Posted on 2011-09-24
I am having a space issue with my sbs 2003 server. It stopped sending and receiving emails, which alerted me to something being wrong. Then, when I logged in remotely, I discovered that it had 0 bytes of free space on the C partition and 52gb remaining on the D partition. I was able to run disk cleanup, which only gave it about 15 mb. Since I have had space issues before (but usually it dropping to about 100mb) if I have not restarted the SBS server in a while (and it has been a few months since I last restarted it), I figured that it just needed to have a reboot to fix the issue.
However, now since I rebooted it, it will not come online. I am located about 1000 miles away and don't know if this is something I can fix remotely, or walk a non-technical person through fixing. If I need to fly there, I can, so please tell me what I would need to do to fix it if I had to fly there.
Also, I already have moved the exchange database to the D partition, and I think the pagefile too. And the total C drive size is 25gb. I don't know what actually runs on the C drive that would even be using the space to make it run down to C.
