System Volume Information folder which consists of Volume Shadow Copies and other system vol stuff. The only one that you have much control over is the number of VSS Copies that you store.

system Volume information folder contains the file of Snapshots of your Shared Folder on your SBS drive which allows you users to recover the previous data in shared folder. This is one of the features related to Volume Shadow Copy for shared folders. However if you want you can move the content to another volume

In the last 2 months...
my concern is you have a sbs2003 server which has most likely been in production for some time. I would be concerned with "why" in the last two months it's just now starting growing so much.

Right click on My Computer - Properties - Advanced System Settings - System Protection - and delete there existing VSS images. This should free up the space.
