In order to process more files on the system and prevent server crashes the client needed regularly scheduled disk space clean-up.
The IT team did this manually which involved a series of complicated and time-consuming tasks. For example:
Uninstall unnecessary apps and programs
Get rid of monster files
Use the Disk Clean-up tool
Delete temporary files
Save to the cloud
The team had to write multiple disparate scripts which often became unmaintainable. Human error was unavoidable in such circumstances and the time spent on disk clean-up was not efficiently used.
