We are running Windows Server 2016 as a Terminal Service. We need to enable windows search service as users outlook also configure on each terminal session. Every 30-45 days "windows.edb" is 180GB. I have to delete the file to make space in C drive. If we disable windows search than users are not able to search anything on server and outlook.

Is there any permanent solution except increase the C drive disk space or move "windows.edb" into another drive. How to reduce "windows.edb" size or limit it?

Thanks in Advance.
