Hi Team,

I would like to know what are the Do's and Don't to free up space from a window server. How can I identify which files can be deleted or not. Most of our server have an additional drive but I am not sure of which files can be moved over to the other disk drive to balance disk spacing. Both C & D drive is mostly occupied by SQL server and backup files but mainly the C drive seem to be the one always full.

The problem I have is tied budget and right now my servers are mostly all at 18 % available space.  I have tried disk cleanup but it only does so much for me. Any other alternative?

Where is the page file for the system located? Moving it over to the D: Drive would help a lot.

The page file is in C drive. I will move it over to D drive.

there isn't any risk involved in moving the pagefile to another drive but a reboot of the server will be needed afterwards.
