Hello Jim3725,

There are some tempporary files which creates whenever any print jobs runs & completes. These files should be deleted however if not then we have to manually delete them if we found there is CPU spike on the server due to Spoolsv.exe.

*.bud - Binary Update files.
*.spl - Spooler Temprary files

Please search them in the C:\ drive using search feature of windows explorer and delete them then monitor the server.
