  • Drive C: Free Space

    I have a few Windows 2008 Servers which love to eat free drive space. One server has 3.65/34.1GB free space left.

    The server has Arcserver, is a Domain Controller and has McAffee *Spit* installed. Not a great deal.

    Disk cleanup doesn't really help. The biggest folder is as always with Windows 2008 the winsxs folder at 9.36GB.

    Can anyone advise on any way to get some space back? Windows is eating itself alive.

    Have you moved updates out of c:\windows?
    Moved swap file to d:

    IMHO Server 2008 really needs a 100Gb OS partition

      The swap file is still on C:. I guess that will free up 4GB of data if I move it.
      Not sure how I go about moving the updates?

          Well I just downloaded it. Quite a nice program, just proves to me that Windows is one hungry OS.
