Here’s the sort of call I love to get while at work.
Client calls in, says that a key software vendor wants to upgrade software on a particular server but they need another few hundred megabytes of free space on the OS partition to get it up to 2 full gigabytes. It’s a relatively small OS partition by today’s standards, only about 18GB. Client wants to know if we can help find a way to eke out this chunk of additional hard disk real estate somehow.
Let’s see. I have a script to clean the SoftwareDistribution directory (Windows Update stores downloaded patches here), I have a script to run MSIZAP (to get rid of obsolete Installers content), I have a script to clean the main Windows as well as user profile Temp directories…
…what’s that? You have 3.5 gigabytes of free space now? You’re welcome, sir. Have a wonderful day.
This sort of thing is why I love working with Kaseya. Several times per day I get to go from “worried client” to “happy client” with no more than a dozen clicks of the mouse.
Please disregard any reports you may hear involving maniacal mad-scientist laughter emanating from the general vicinity of my office.
