Hello Experts

I have a cloent who is running Server 2008 SBS.

It appears that some process is running and very rapidly consuming disk space.  Can someone help me figure out what is running and doing this?

Thanks

Do you trim the SBS 2008 Monitoring Database regularly? It should be done periodically as it can diminish your disk space quickly.  

Have a look at this: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/27864646/SBSMonitoring-database-is-full.html

While you're at it, you should also shrink SharePoint database log file to save space.

Make sure your backups work 100%. Exchange server for example creates transaction logs, and those will only be removed if you use an exchange aware backup tool, and do a full backup, and that full backup is 100% successful. If that isn't the case those logs will take up more and more space.

What's using the space?  What have you done to try to find out?  WinDirStat?  TreeSize?
