Printers/printer server?
If not why would you want to change it?
If it is not broken why try and break it?.

Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.

this is due to many different printer drivers that there are, plus Windows updates.

but let's not fall into discussion of the lack of free space. it just is.

so, is it restricted to change default location of printer drivers folder in windows server 2003? has ms ceased that feature?

I think this must be the #1 question on this group - all caused by DELL
using a smallish boot partition size in their setups.

Please use http://groups.google.com and search for "sbs2003 low disk space"
and you will find lots of answers. Basically your best bet is to move the
company data off the C: drive onto other drives using the MS document.

There are PCL and PS drivers installed for all printers on that computer in question with Windows Server 2003.

Surprisingly, some users are fine printing .PDF files, but some are experiencing long time waits during printing.

Let me finish this thought before I get too deep into it.

To my understanding PS drivers do away as good with printing tasks as PCL drivers, but handle .PDF files better than latter. I am in process of switching users from PCL to PS drivers.

Thank you for links, I'll look into them and see if they bear applicable solution
