You should be able to remove. How many content revisions are you keeping?

Also, have you considered upgrading? You're on a very old version.

Please click the "Mark as solution" link at bottom left on the post that best answers your question. This will benefit admins looking for a solution to the same problem.

This version had some issues with purging the inetpub folder 

under admin servers, minimize the number of content revisions to keep to 3 ( 1 day definition)

Stop sepm service 

delete all the temp files and Everything Inside the AlphaNumeric folder ( Not the folder itself)

restart SEPM service, You should have good ammount of space left.
