  • Hard Disk is Full

    I am Using ML350 with 80GB Hard Disk. Its has PDC and Exchange 2003. Exchange Database is 20GB. I havent got enough RAM memory so what i have done, just increased virtual memory to 4GB.
    Problem is, My 80GB hard disk is full and I cant find out what happened to it. when i check all the folders size, it was 30GB. I was trying to delete temporary file and "System volu..." But i could save 3 GB Only. Disk cleanup is not working and it takes 1-2 hours but nothing can find out.
    How can I find the hidden file that was in Virtual memory?

    Pls help
    Thanks

    1. "System Volume Information" is needed. Do not delete it.
    2. "Virtual Memory" is NOT RAM. Increasing it will have no effect on performance (except maybe to make it worse)
    3. You need to do a search on your C: drive for files bigger than 100Mb, sort them by size, and find out what the biggest ones are. Report back here - don't delete them they may be important.

      Are your exchange logs being flushed when you run a backup???

        I didn't know Exchange 2003 ran on NT4.0 Server.

          did you use treesize to pinpoint the large data folders?

              Do you not run a backup every night??

              A full or incremental backup configured correctly will flush your exchange log files for you.
