150Gb is entirely adequate for Server 2012 R2

Download Tree Size Professional (Jam Software), install it and run it. It will quickly tell you where the space has gone. You must be running something (Exchange maybe) that is using the space. We do not run Exchange at our clients.

Run Tree Size as Administrator and let it show you what is using the space.

See my article on what's using up the disk space:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/28565/Using-Tools-To-Find-What-is-Using-Your-Disk-Space.html

Note: A 150 GB is SMALL for an RDS server.  Each user logging in will have a profile which will take space.  The more users, the more space.  Then if those users save documents to their desktops or profiles, or download files, these too will take space.  While 150 GB is typically fine for most servers, for an RDS server it's very low.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

User Profiles are taking up a lot of space.

Program Files and Windows are HUGE. What did you install?

A quick trick I like to run, is do a search of the entire drive (or profiles in this case), and then sort by size.  It takes time, but will show you the largest files (ISO, Movies, MP3's) and also if there are duplicates.  Delete as needed/approved

Try Tree Size to see why Program Files and Windows are so large. Data does not normally go here, so what is here.

It's the Microsoft Search Indexer.

As per article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2838018:
To resolve this issue, install update rollup 2836988 for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. For more information about how to obtain this update rollup package, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
2836988 Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 update rollup: May 2013

Note This update is preventative, but not corrective. To reduce the size of a Windows.edb file that is already affected by this issue, you must rebuild the search index after you install this update.
How to delete and rebuild index

    Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search. Or, if you are using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, and then click Search.
    Tap or click Settings.
    In the search box, type indexing options.
    Tap or click Indexing Options.
    Tap or click Advanced.
    Tap or click Rebuild on the Indexing Settings tab.
    Tap or click OK to confirm.
