Low Disk Space in SAP Drive

If your “SAP Installed” drive is nearly full or free space getting lower and you cannot restart the SAP system then you can use the following workaround solutions without system restart operation…

1 – Reset the TRACE files

Let’s check the files size under \SAPEXECDrive\usr\sap\SID\DVEBMGS00\work

Just these 2 files has nearly 30 GB trace info

Then we can reset the all trace files like below ;

Administration –> Trace –> Reset –> All Files

    I tried creating space by executing the program ‘RSBTCDE’ using SE38 TCode. Upon execution I gave the start date as ’01.01.2013′ and end date as ’31.05.2015′ by checking ‘Delete with force mode’. But system was running for more than 3 hours and could not produce any output list / message. Finally I forcibly closed the execution window (SE38) and found no empty space created on my SAP Drive.

    Please anybody help me further.
