My System disk c: is 30 gb. and is full. All my data is on my e: drive and no problem there.
 My Windows directory occupies 23 GB is that normal ?
I have moved all Temp folders to e: drive.
Is this normal size for Windows directory ? Do I need bigger system disk.

Yes, you need a much larger System disk. Personally, I would not do anything less than a 100GB drive. Through time and upgrades etc.. your system tends to grow somewhat.

23GB would not be abnormal for a Windows directory

Well I am running this server on Hyper-V with SSD drives and they are still expensive.

Well that wasn't mentioned... Sorry, perhaps you can tell me your setup in some detail then? I still would not allocate anything less than 50GB Fixed Disk space and 32GB of RAM

 Microsoft recommends allocating disk space using the following formula:

"15 GB + the amount of virtual memory allocated to the VM in question"

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
