Drive is full on Server and could not identify what exactly Utilizing the space.

Can anyone advise on this? Machine is Windows 2008 with SQL Installed on it.

Removed the Windows XP, 7 and 8 Topic Areas, and instead added the m$ OS, m$ Server OS, Windows Server 2008 and M$ SQL Server Topic Areas.

See if there are any shadow copies pending on the server or not?

Below Symantec Article would help you to some extent.

Usually when this happens, I open WinDirStat (https://windirstat.info/) to check who are the big offenders, and if those are files that can be deleted or not.
