Windows 7 C: Drive quota?

Jump to solution

Hi folks,

We have a Windows 7 Full VM pool in use.  The 60GB C: drive fills up usually because of piled up Windows Updates or winSxS folder and causes a connection error until resolved.

I run patch cleaner, windows updates, usually clears space, until it fills up again.

Question:

Anyone ever use a C: Drive disk quota to help manage this problem?

I just wondering if it will effect Windows Updates or something else.

This has plagued us for years and the best solution has been to increase the hard disk. You could look at quotas for the users profile but I would not recommend it anywhere else.

For our full VMs we've just been increasing the hard disk for growth. With linked/instant clones you can increase the hard disk and then must recompose the pool.
