Cannot release disk space after removed files in Windows Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Support, 

    We cannot find the hotfix (KB2679054) to release the free disk space not reallocated to a disk quota when we delete files in Windows Server. 

    Could we only be able to run the command "Dirquota quota scan" to update regularly for maintenance purpose?

    Reference:
    Free disk space is not reallocated to a disk quota when you delete files in Windows Server 2008 R2 
    https://support.microsoft.com/zh-hk/help/2679054/free-disk-space-is-not-reallocated-to-a-disk-quota-when-you-delete-fil
    Symptoms 
    Assume that you configure a disk quota for a volume on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2. When you delete some files on the volume, the disk space that you free by deleting the files is not added to the available memory in the quota.
    Cause 
    This issue occurs because the file context structure is not filled in correctly when you delete the files.
    Resolution 
    To resolve this issue, we have released a hotfix for Windows Server 2008 R2.
    Note 
    After you apply this hotfix on computers where the issue has occurred, you have to run the following Dirquota quota scan command to reallocate free disk space:
    Dirquota quota scan /Path: <Path>

    Workaround
    To work around this issue, run the following command to reallocate free disk space:
    Dirquota quota scan /Path: <Path>

    Thanks!

    Best Regards, 
    Daniel

  • Dear Daniel, 

    We can apply the hotfix (KB2679054) provided by the web site you provide in Windows Server 2008 R2. 
    Could you think our issue can be resolved after applying the hotfix (KB2679054) only in Windows Server 2008 R2?
    Thanks!

    Best Regards, 
    Daniel

  • Dear Daniel, 

    Could you think that this issue does not happen on Windows Server 2016? 

    Could Windows Server 2016 be able to release the free disk space when we delete files in Windows Server?

    Thanks!

    Best Regards, 
    Daniel
