Hello everybody,


I need some help with a server 2008 that has 80 Gig  partition on the C: drive.

the C: drive is currently running out of space it only have 3 Gigs left.  I ran Windirstat and its see the 80 Gig, but when scan the drive it only shows me 49.3GB of data.
I can find where is the rest of the data to see if its logs.

this server runs exchange 2007 and SharePoint 3.0. both Database our on the D: drive. I just cant find whats taken the rest of the 80 c: drive.
