Incorrect Server Storage information RRS feed

  • Question

  • After installing Power Pack 1 my server storage is showing:


    339 GB Data (probably about right)

    31GB System (when it is really just 7GB and the partition is 20GB)

    4.2 GB of PC Backups (although I have deleted all the PC backups so there should be none)


    Does anyone have any ideas on how to reclaim this space?

  • PC backups will continue to occupy some space even if you've deleted all backups. The only way to reclaim that space is to remove all client PCs then delete the backup database. The calculation for the amount of space occupied by "system" has changed to be more accurate. Instead of just being the 20 GB system partition it now includes other system folders, shadow copies, etc. This is documented in this forum; should you want to read more you could do a search.
