System Drive on SBS 2003 Server Filling Up

Posted on 2012-09-11
Last Modified: 2012-09-16
I have a SBS 2003 Server that is fully patched.  Exchange and SharePoint are installed.  Exchange is used and the MDBDATA folder is located on a secondary drive.  SharePoint is not used.  Symantec BackupExec is installed and the catalog files are on a secondary drive.  SQL is running for monitoring, BackupExec, and SharePoint but the database files are relatively small.  Log files are kept to 2MB each.  Something is continously, a couple hundred MB daily, eating away at free space on the system drive.  I have not installed file monitoring software.  Any ideas has to what may be eating up free space on the system drive?

    Install WinDirStat and run it as an administrator to find out.

    Sounds like your doing a decent job managing the system, but more ideas/places to look can be found on my web page:

    I did not need to install windirstat.  I read your summary table and looked in my IIS log file.  Deleteing old log files freed up 40 GB of disk space.
