ET's VS and TFS World Fascinating tidbits about VS and TFS and .NET (well I hope...)

I’ve recently encountered a problem where my deployment agents where gobbling up a ton of space on the C drive of my deployed machine, after investigation, when you start a deployment, the agent copies the package content over to the machine it’s deploying on in the temp folder essentially at c:\users\<USER>\appdata\local\temp\releasemanagement\… which essentially was filling up my C drive.  Now like all good IT organization, SysAdmin create very small C drive (usually for the OS) so if something goes out of control the C drive blows up and that has a domino effect on the rest of the system.


Here is what you can do to fix this. 

Login as the service account that runs the Deployment Agent.

Open the System control panel


Select Advanced system setting


Then select Environment variables


and change the TEMP and TMP variable to point to a drive where you have space


After that restart the Microsoft Deployment Agent service and you should be good to go.
