Windows 2000 server is running out of disk space

By m307 ·
I noticed that everytime my Automatic Updates downloads new updates, the space on my C:> Drive is decreasing. Does anyone know where these downloads are saved? Maybe if i delete them i could reterive some space.

My server: Small Business Server 2000
(Windows 2000 Server)

Drive Space remaing : 16.1 Mb

Thanks for your help?

The downloads are deleted as soon as they are installed. The only things left are the $NtUninstallxxx$ folders are created when a new patch is installed. If disk is getting scarce, you can delete the oldest ones first (not the recent ones).

Other places to check is User Profiles in C:\Documents and Settings (unused ones can be deleted in System control panel). Temp folders, Desktop folders, IE Temp files, Temp folders etc.
Use the Disk Cleanup tool, if you haven't done so already.
