How can I find out how large the print spool can grow on a Windows 2008 R2 Server?  What does this even mean?  Is there a setting somewhere that can be changed?  Thanks!

The print spool folder itself consists of all of the spool files for all of the printers on that server.  It can grow until it runs your C drive out of space.  You do have the option to move it to another drive to prevent that from happening.
