Client Computer Backup how to reduce disk space

Hi All,

on our W Server 2012R2 Essentials there is a disc space of 300 GB rerserved for Client Computer Backup (Sorry i must translate from german: "Clientcomputersicherung"). Because it is a part of the virtual hard disc I want to reduce the space, because our data increases. I tried to reduce the number of computers, to reduce the storage time and what I found in the Dashboard, but nothing changed the amount of the disc space.

Any hint what to do?

Here's how to clear disk space and increase storage on your desktop or laptop, even if you've never done it before.

Uninstall unnecessary apps and programs. 

Clean your desktop. 

Get rid of monster files. 

Use the Disk Cleanup Tool. 

Discard temporary files. 

Deal with downloads. 

Save to the cloud.
