    Exclamation BIG problem...

    Running server 2003 on one of my file servers.... currently we have 0 space as soon as i create space i.e 20gig it goes.... been creating space now for 2 days and it goes within hours!

    Sometimes this space will then go up randomly say from 2mb to 3 gig?

    Any one have any ideas because at this current time no-one can save!!! and the end of lesson time is coming................

    can you see where the space is going? something like Treesize may be useful

    Sounds like shadow copies to me, I bought an extra 1TB drive to host the shadow copies a few years ago, bit of overkill I know but it solved the problem.

    Try Spacemonger (attached) smashing little gadget that graphically shows what's using the space up

    Right click the volume you are having trouble with and then properties and the shadow copies tab, see if you have it enabled and scheduled.

    not familiar personally, but is this any help? DFSRPrivate\ConflictandDeleted - Is it safe to delete or this: http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/arc...r-in-dfsr.aspx

    or set the ntfs permissions on the folder to everyone:deny and see what complains???
