Question:

Sometimes your server might run out of space on because the SVI (System Volume Information) is eating up all memory.
 
The system volume information is used in windows in order to save information related to system restore which is used when a restoration of the system is performed.
 
The problem is that if there is no size limit to this feature, it might take a significant amount of the system memory, without ability to directly delete it.

Answer:

There are two ways to resize the SVI:
  1. Through the system properties - follow these instructions: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/windows/how-make-system-volume-information-folder-smaller-3613911/
  2. Through the command line - if you don't see the system protection tab according to the above method, you can resize it through the command line: https://indrajitc.wordpress.com/2008/03/25/reclaiming-disk-space-from-system-volume-information/
