    Hi All,

    I am struggling to find a problem with my Windows 2000 Server, which also
    acts as the primary server for our network.

    I notice that on the C: partition, I am down to 364 meg of available free
    space. While I was trying to find a way to free up some space, I found this
    file:

    scepol.log

    This file is 226 MEG by itself. And I don't know what it is doing, or why
    it is there.

    Is this something I can delete safely? What is it? Why is it there?

    Also, if anyone can recommend any OTHER .log files I can safely delete,
    please let me know.

    Thank-you so much,

    Hi Cleve,

    I followed the Hotfix and was able to delete that file afterward. That
    brought back 230 meg.

    Afterward I also ran Disk Cleanup, which got me back another 550 meg
    (believe it or not).

    So after I was all done, I got back just shy of 800 meg, for a total of
    about 1.1 or 1.2 gig of my 4.0 gig boot partition.

    MUCH nicer. :)

    Thanks very much!

    David
