Dear Experts,

In windows 2012 server Sharepoint 2013 foundation is configured. From last month onward the C:\ drive is getting full automatically. How can I free up the space. Our environment is virtual. Even I increase the space next day the c drive gets full. How can i free up the space.

Regards,

It's likely that your SQL server if writing copious log files and filling the drive.

Check this out in order to shrink those;

I think over here you need incremental back up kind of solution. It actually check the updates made in the file and only copy the updated one. For an example if the file contains RABBI it is stored than the very next day the file is updated as RABBIT so it will not take full RABBIT again it will only take the T as it is updated.

It saves a lot of time of course and most probably it never creates any copies.

If this is a single server install, meaning SQL is on the same server as SharePoint, the content databases could be growing because of user activity. Which would be a good thing as far a acceptance goes, unless they are uploading movies and huge files things in to SharePoint...

Hope that helps...

Hi ,

This is a single server. Its only configured for one section only .  I firmly believe the users are not uploading anything.

What do the log files look like? What size are they?

It's the most plausible source of high and rapid disk space usage.

I've also seen ULS logs write high volumes, but nothing on a par with SQL.
