How much free disk space?
I have 2008 R2 server which has a 40Gb C:\ partition that has just dipped below 20% free - so around 7.8Gb free.
At what point would one get worried about the lack of disk space?
The server is used for our finance software.
The winsxs folder is currently over 9Gb and I've seen some online docs to suggest it's safe to run the following command to reclaim some space:
dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /spsuperseded
Any comments please.

Not too much concern until you're less than <5GB.
Have you got IIS running on this server? Clearing those logs out is an easy way to reclaim space.
There's an MS kb on clearing out some of the space in winsxs: How to address disk space issues that are caused by a large Windows component store (WinSxS) directory

No to IIS

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

You're still OK, but I would move the swap file to another volume with more space if you haven't already.
