Thread: System Information Volume folder, on Server 2003, filling up.

  1. #1
    Matt Guest
    I have a Server 2003 with a volume which is running out of space.
    The volume in question is a small volume used for MS SQL 2000 databases.
    The folder causing problems, using space, is System Information Volume.

    F:\System Volume Information>dir /aahs
    Volume in drive F is DB
    Volume Serial Number is 2A8C-7ECA

    Directory of F:\System Volume Information

    10 File(s) 3,948,879,872 bytes
    0 Dir(s) 123,625,472 bytes free

    I do not have System Restore points on this server, nor does this volume use
    Shadow Copies.

    All the files are created at around 11:00, which is when Backup Exec run a
    backup for this volume.

    Although I hate doing this, I'm going to delete the oldest file and free up
    some space, I can;t have my dbs failing due to lack of space.

    Any ideas ?

    To resolve the issue, stop the Volume Shadow Copy service.
    a. Open Services from Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools.
    b. Locate the Volume Shadow Copy service, and Stop the service.
    c. The files can be manually deleted after the service is stopped

    I had the same problem. The Backup Exec jobs were not completing successfully and my System Volume folder grew to over 90GB. All I had to do was stop and start the Volume Shadow Copy service. All of the temp files were gone after the service started up again.
