What sub-folders on the drive can you observe taking that space?

 

The most space will be taken by the AV definitions kept on SEPM - have a look at the following articles and set the amount of the definitions kept as appropriate:

How many content revisions are you keeping?

Go to Admin > Servers > Local Site server right click edit properties > Liveupdate check number of content revisions to be keep. If this is set high then more space will be used especially if store clients unzipped is ticked for better performance.

Please review ideas and vote there could be something useful :)

It's very importanat to find out what sub-folders under SEPM folder taking that space?

Especially check sem5.db size, sem5.log file size & content folder size.
