Remove all the logs.

Also your C: drive should be twice that size, at least 130GB.

ok Thanks.
But the logs just filled up with 700MB.

The big folder is WINSXS, this is filled with 8GB

WINSXS is NOT anything to do with vCenter Server.

You need to increase your disk size, as per my post, recommended size of disk is 130GB.
