What apps have you server running?  Perhaps there is some kind of extensive logging for one app (ie IIS) in place.

Blackberry server is well known to write massive logs. Have a look at this Blackberry KB13959 article regarding the logfiles.

Check at the Blackberry server under "C:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server\Logs". At this place are usually all the BES logfiles located. Via the log folder properties can you get infos about the used space.

The logs are organized by date. I delete routinely the oldest logs, but normally I try to hold logfiles for a period of roundabout 30 days. How old are the oldest folder with the logfiles?

I would suggest deleting in a first run all the folders up to end of April  and check again the size of the BES logs. Perhaps you should monitor the folder a bit, to get a feeling how much space you need for the logs.

A very useful tool to find the biggest directories and files is Treesize from Jam software.

Use Treesize to find the file/dir which is using the most space on the disk. After this file is recognized, you can start looking for the application which is writing the logs.
