SPSearch user folder taking up large amounts of drive space - SBS2008
Posted on 2013-12-06
I have a SBS2008 server and we suddenly found ourselves out of space on the C: drive. I narrowed it down to a folder called "C:\Users\SPSearch" using Spacemonger, which shows that parent folder and sub folders as unscanable, but taking up over half the drive space. However, if (as domain admin) I click through that folder tree with show hidden folder/system folders enabled, I can't find anything taking up the space. Space taken is ~80GB, but folder properties show about 20MB.
I know the spsearch is a Sharepoint account. I'm wondering if this a a database that needs to be moved? Maybe a backup cache that isn't freeing up? Not even sure where to start since my searches have yielded nothing useful.
