  • i have limited space on c: Drive on Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1. But after updates were ran on this Server, the Datastore.edb File is growing close to 1.10 GB in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore Folder. I delete this Datastore.edb file but it again appears after 3 - hours and grows close to 1.10 GB. I have Disk Space Alerts as a result i am getting alets when Disk Space crosses 95 %.

  • I was having this problem as well. It's an issue with windows update service. I would restart the server and the drive would continue to be eaten by datastore.edb  How I fixed it was to switch windows update service to manual from auto (delayed start). Then I stopped the service. instantly the datstore.edb went from 65 GB to 8 KB. I restarted the services changed it back to auto delayed start and was good after that.
