Question

Win 7 Low Disk Space

Hi


I am having an issue with low disk space in Windows 7 (32bit).
Through observations I have found that the CBS folder (C:\Windows\Logs\CBS) Folder appears to be over 200GB in size.

This seems rather strange.
I was wondering how I can find out what has caused this to occur, and how I can fix this?
And also wondering that after that whether I can clear out any of these files?

Thanks in advance

Thanks. Had a look at that earlier

Thanks for your quick response

However that seems to be with Windows Server?
Could not find much on Win 7 specifically.

Also I have other files apart from CBS.log
A whole series of 'CBSpersist' files. I think these are due to the large size of the CBS.log file, causing it to be split.

So if I run sfc.exe and delete the log files, do you think that could potentially solve the issue?

Thanks. Had a look at that thread. System restore allocation is significantly low i.e. 5% and not taking up much disk space.
So I don't think that is causing it.

You find this discussion about Windows 7 too.

I offered this one since it went over renaming and deleting. And yes to your question but no, until Microsoft considers fixing it, we get to cleanup once in a while. As to SFC, I never had to do that.
