C: Drive filling up on WHS2011

Recommended Posts

Something is filling up my C: drive in WHS2011 and for the life of me I can't figure out what it is.

 

Any suggestions on where to look would be appreciated.

 

Could it be CrashPlan?  OneDrive (though I have OneDrive as a ServerShare out in my pool so it shouldn't be junking up C:)

 

Thanks!

Have you tried windirstat? Graphical ui showing you disk utilization.

Think I found the problem -- Shadow Copies was soaking up 34GB

Did you disable shadow copies on C altogether?

I'm having the same problem. C: drive almost filled at 59gb out of 60gb

Shadow Copies really should not be needed on the root unless your data is stored there,

I disabled shadow copies on C: altogether -- so far so good.

 

HAL-9000 had been getting pretty chatty with all the alerts he had been sending me -- He's been pretty quiet since last evening and it seems to be backing up OK.

I had a similar problem and used windirstat.  I just have it loaded on my server by default.  Great to have.  Mine was a temporary directory that MyMovies was using.  Had around 8Gb in it.

That Windirstat is looking pretty interesting -- would come in handy to have in my toolkit

Space Monger (I use the older, free version) can also be used to graphically display disk usage.
