How to free space on a C partition on windows 2003 server.
Posted on 2013-01-02
We use windows 2003 server and it is also our User Document and WSUS server on our network. On this server the space on C drive is keeping dropping and it has dropped to 40mb now.
Is there a way to clear the space on the C drive. Previously when there were space issues on this server i had to remove some of the programs from Control Panel -Add Remove Programs which were not really required.
I started the Disk Cleanup wizard and under Files to delete
Compress old files - i can see 11, 245,23
Also i went to C:\Windows folder and unhided the folder and files and i can see lot of folders like "$NtUninstallKB2264107$" ...
So is it safe to delete these files and folders. If i delete these files will windows cause any issues to boot or other problems.
Any sugessions much appreciated
