SBS2011: The SharePoint Health Analyzer detected an error. Drives are running out of free space.Available drive space is less than twice the value of physical memory. [Solved]

One of the common SBS 2008 and SBS 2011 errors is the “Running out of diskspace” error.

This error occurs even if you do not use sharepoint.

 

When you are sure that there’s no problem with the drive space, like a large amount of memory available in the server, you can disable this message.

 

ERROR:
Log Name: Application

Source: Microsoft-SharePoint Products-SharePoint Foundation

Date: 10/22/2013 6:00:01 AM

Event ID: 2137

Task Category: Health

Level: Error

Keywords:

User: DOMAIN\spfarm

Computer: SBS01. DOMAIN.local

Description:

The SharePoint Health Analyzer detected an error. Drives are running out of free space.

Available drive space is less than twice the value of physical memory. This is dangerous because it does not provide enough room for a full memory dump with continued operation. It also could cause problems with the Virtual Memory swap file: OS (SBS01 – C:\).

Examine the failing servers and delete old logs or free space on the drives. For more information about this rule, see “http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=142688″.
