Solved Memory C Drive

Post by zrawrxd on 7th March 2009, 8:04 pm

On the C Drive i noticed that its like using memory.
Right now its 177GB free of 220GB. But it had more free memory before, untill i installed World of Warcraft then i uninstalled it. It was alot higher then 177GB it was around 180GB before i installed WoW, then when i uninstalled WoW i got 177GB.

Edit: Ok, i saw that VSS - Volume Shadow Service takes away memory. How do i delete the files in VSS and stop using it.

The guide is similar to Vista, so you can follow it.

Start >> Type in CMD in the Start Search box, and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

Type:

Code:
vssadmin /?

To change the size of the reserved Shadow space (System Restore and Previous Versions), type this:

Code:
vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /On=[drive]: /For=[drive]: /Maxsize=[size]


To limit the usage of VSS backup files to 5 Gigabytes on your C: drive, use this command:

Code:
vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /On=C: /For=C: /MaxSize=5GB

I don't think there is a way to delete the files inside. But you can change the size to something small and change it back.
