MS CRM 2011 server disk space issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have CRM 2011 installed on a Windows server 2008 R2 machine.

    C drive space on the server seems to be filling up with only 5 GB space now available out of 100 GB however when I open C drive, select all folders (hidden included) and check for disk space it adds up to only 25 GB.

    Can someone let us know what is causing the disk space to fill up? Pointers to where and what to look for are also appreciated.

  • Hi Santosh,

    In our case we found that IIS logs were filling up disk space. You will find them usually in C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles

  • Hi,

    Can you check if the debug mode is switched ON ? this should be switched OFF all time because if consumes logs of disk space unless you troubleshooting an issue.

  • Thanks for the reply.

    Debug mode is off.

    We are missing information of about 75 Gb of disk space. Also I guess debug mode will not use up that amount of space.

  • Hi Vikas,

    yes Debug will consume that quiet easily in  few hours if you have a busy system, it will eventually crash the system if left switched ON.

    If the issue is you don't know where is 75Gb of disk space, why you think the issue is CRM 2011?
