In August I asked a similar question
, or at least in an attempt to do the same thing - get more space on my c: partition of my file server running win2003r2 service packed. I am admining this computer which came configured from dell with 12gb on the c: partition and 500gb on the d: partition.
The partitions look like this:
dell partition with 0 free
c partition with 270mb of 12gb free
partition that seems to be the size of all disks/partitions combined with 0 free
d partition with 400gb free of 500gb
In the other question I accepted an answer that linked to an article on freeing up space on your hard drive for win2000 servers. The advice was excellent and I ended up with 2gb free on my c: partition. My problem now is that it keeps shrinking. I've had to go through the steps 3 times since then to regain less and less space. I even uninstalled a slew of applications and some windows components. It would be great if I knew enough to know if I could get rid of the .net framework - does server use that? I have to have a malware scanner installer by university regulations and the one they provide for free is SEP which has 500mb in definition files alone (with only 270mb it doesn't even have room enough to update the definitions).
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm an expert here but my specialty is definitely not in windows server.
