I have SEMP 12.1 installed on windows server 2003 enterprise edition

Unfortunately the C drive has only 300mb free space because the Symantec DB takes about 50 gigabit

Can I change the DB location to other drive ???

Note I try to shrink DB but it filed becasue the tools try to get backup before the shrink and there no space

Appreciate you letting us know about the Tool usage.

I agree, due to Lack of Space the usage of Tool would be difficult and may fail.

However, what version of SEP 12.1 are you running? The issue seems to have been resolved with SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1.

How many clients are reporting to the SEPM?

Total how many clients are reporting to SEPM?

I hope you have enable SEPM database maintenance features i.e.

1) Truncate transaction logs

2) Rebuild Indexes

Also check that how many days logs are retained in the database? have you changed any default settings?

How many content revision SEPM is maintaining?
