    Is there a way to clean up the "system volume information" folder on a
    Windows 2003 R2 server. This folder is causing my system not to have any
    drive space.

  2. Hi Eric,

    Your shadow copy restore info is stored here. If you are not wanting to use
    the shadow copy service (found in the properties of your drive under Shadow
    Copies) just disable it and then delete the copies listed. Or, if you wish
    to continue to use the service, I beleive you can set it to create the
    copies on another volume, if you have one.
