  • SBS2011 - Running out of space on C

    I have a few installations of the afore mentioned OS and one thing is becoming very apparent. The C: drives are filling up with something at a geometric rate. Mailbox edb is only say 13GB, no users files (routed elsewehere). When installed the server was like using about 60GB of a 120 allocation but now they are well over 100 and rising daily.

    What can I check or remove to stop this problem from occuring. Could it be a WSUS thing? If it is I am not using WSUS so can I dump it and how?

    It could be updates downloaded by WSUS but I would look for log files first and clean those up, then look at WSUS.

      Use the wizards to move everything (email, wsus and user folders, IIRC) to the D drive -- some downtime but zero risk
