Low Disk Space

One of my jobs is cleaning out servers with low disk space. Some of these drives have very little space to work with. Today I had multiple drives with 500-600mb left on 9-10GB drives. I usually go for the %WinDir%, and hit up symantec virus defs older than 10 days, trend micro has a cleaning program and of course CC Cleaner. I guess I was just wondering if anybody knows of some good tricks to lower space when you are in a pinch? I work mostly with Server 2008R2. Thanks!

Thanks, that article is great! I already use Tree Size often, I find that Winderstat is another great utility. Thanks guys.

Windirstat for me...  It has a graphical look so you can just check out giant red block or whatever is the largest.  It is a little slower though.  Runs on all windows platforms.
