Server Emergency Cleanups

Screenshot of the emergency clean up.
This hasn't happened before when I run emergency cleanups on servers. It isn't allowing me to clear incremental's and for some reason all the root folders are 0 in size. The server is running low on disk space so i need to run the cleanup.

Any advise would be appreciated.

I think the incremental files are still in use (e.g., a backup routine has the files open).  However, I don't think deleting those files will help your storage constraint problems.  

Could you reboot the server?  This will allow you to log in and delete files (in case some are still open and prevent you from doing file cleanups).  PowerShell may have the ability to certain files and delete them.  Have you emptied the recycle bin?  Can you open a command prompt and go to %tmp% ?  Then you could delete the tmp folder to free up space.
