    New server on order - old server full - what can I delete?

    attached is the spacemonger display of the 6.7GB windows folder on that server - which of those folders can be safely deleted? (size in the graphic indicates size on the disk)
    (and it wasn't me that decided to have Windows and data on the same partition....)

    This server's being retired in the next couple of weeks - I just need it to hang on until its replacement arrives!

    loose the kb files (blue, in windir) service pack folder and ie8 updates. delete the KB last as you'll no longer be able to roll back a hotfix with those files gone.


    + when saving graphics images use PNG not JPG
