i got 40gb disk space on my exchange server and the winsxs takes more than 18GB disk space. i cant find any post to clearup this folder.

what i can understand from the forums are that this folder cannot be deleted and microsoft still dont have a fix.

already run comclean and didnt help. the exchange transport service stops when the disk space is full.

any idea to solve this? i have seen some windows 2008 with nothing on winsxs folder.

I am running windows 2008 64bit with exchange 2007sp2

That's a Windows thing and you tend to need it. I've experimented by tearing stuff out of there and Windows does work but service pack and patch time is fun!
Best to leave it. If you have 40GB disk you should be perfectly fine. Exchange shouldn't put anything storage hogging on the C drive.

I have sent a PM,

if i want to move the exchange to D drive how it would be possible so my transport service will not stop when the disk space is full on C.

currently when my c is full the exchange transport service stops.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb125177.aspx is what you need to use to move the transport database.
