Reclaim Window 2008 R2 disk space

My C partition run out of space.  I have already

1. remove serivce patch under c:\windows\$NTUninstallxxx
2. free up space under c:\widnows\softwareDistribution
3. Remove files under temporary folder

But that does help too much.

I am thinking of change the size of page file (current 6Gb) to 200Mb. Any comment on that ?

Apprecipate any suggestion on reclaiming space on Window 2008 R2

If you have another partition move the page file from C to that partition.

Is this a physical or virtual box?

This is a physical. What is min page size on C ?

Beside that, any way to reclaim space on C drive ?

Recommended is 1.5x RAM. So 4 Gb of ram would equal 6 Gb page file.

I use WinstatDir to check what is using the drivespace on our servers at work with good results.

It will graphically represent file types and how much space they are taking up.

If you are running Win2008 R2 Sp1, to reclaim space, open a admin command prompt and run:

Dism /online /cleanup-image /spsuperseded

As C drive is running out of space, can I set the page file to 300MB on C drive and set the remaining pagefile in D drive ? Any comment ?
