Sometimes our server is running out of space on hard drive Is there a command I could run in order to determine what is consuming space, date and size of the files recently added to hard drive (server is NOT a file server)

Use Spacesniffer to see what is occupying the most space. I suspect it will be logfiles or the Winsxs folder.

Also, please confirm what services are running on the server, e.g. Exchange, Symantec Endpoint Protection, WSUS...as these can create sizeable swings in available disk space so would be good to know what the server is being used for.
