We are running 1902 with the Hotfix rollup. Server 2012 R2, 32GB RAM.  OS is installed on C:\ (102GB), SQL DB installed on E:\ (199GB), and SCCM is installed on F:\ (1.70 TB).  My C:\ drive is completely full, ie 0 bytes free.  What can I do to free up some of this space so I can actually use the Admin console again?  I've tried to go through and clean up things but there isn't much else I can do (that I know of).  Is my C:\ drive just not big enough or will it just fill up more if we add space?  Any help would be appreciated.

start looking at logs and temp files, use Treesizefree to get a graphical overview of the damage, probably sql logs hogging everything

 

don't delete stuff without knowing what you are doing, SQL log files can be compacted, see here

I used WinDirStat and show that the WinSxS folder is eating 8.5Gb, but can't get rid of those.  The largest space SQL related is the Update Cache, but only 1.5gb

there you go ! now you know why i use TreeFreeSize, the problem you have is as i guessed, the sql server transaction logs, look at my link above and you'll see how to compress them down to almost nothing

yes of course, do it and if it doesn't help choose the second shrink option and try again (it's a while since i did it)
