Windows 2008 TS reports 0bytes available on volume

Terminal server is reporting 0 bytes available suddenly.  The data doesn't add up since seems to be around 60GB of data on a 150GB volume.  Ran dir /a /s from a elevated command prompt and it reported 60GB used.  Any thoughts on this?

Many thanks

Pete

try treesize or windirstat

could also be shadow copies; have you looked at that?

Hi Seth,
Shadow copies are disabled on the drive.   I'll check on treesize and windirstat.  I've not used those things before so I'm a little unclear on what they are.  Thanks.

I have a snapshot from Hyper-V manager made from last month which should might prove to be useful.  I went ahead and restarted it so that the chkdsk will run.  I'll keep you posted.  Thanks.

Just as an aside, you should not be running on a snapshot for more than 2 days!

Sorry Seth, Hyper-V and virtualization were my tags that I used but I guess that may not have been visible.
