Large WER folder using most disk space on Windows Server 2008

The WER folder becomes large when there are a large number of problem reports.

WER stands for Windows Error Reporting (WER). Windows Error Reporting collects and offers to send post-error debug information (a memory dump), using the Internet, to the developer of an application that crashes or stops responding on a user's desktop. No data is sent without the user's consent.

You can delete the files from “C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER”.

To clear reports go to the "Control Panel" and select "System and Maintenance"
and under "Problem Reports and Solutions" select "View problem history"

The following should pop up

Right Click and select all the reports

Delete the reports

Hope this helps !!!
