A recent issue caused disk space to run out at one of our data centers. This resulted in the Windows Performance Recorder (WPR) System Collector being unable to collect data due to lack of disk space. We are working to resolve this issue and hope to restore normal operations soon. In the meantime, we recommend deleting the following files to free up some disk space:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.SQL2014\OLAP\DataCollectors\ETL\wprcollector.etl
Method 1: Disable the DiagTrack Service from Command Prompt
The Windows Diagnostic Tracking Tool (DiagTrack), which tracks system crashes, hangs, reboots and other events, can cause problems for some computers. If you want to disable it permanently, follow our step-by-step instructions.
Method 2: Deactivate the DiagTrack Service from the Services Console
If you are using a Windows 8.1 or later version of Windows, you can disable the Diagnostic Tracking service by opening the services console and disabling it there. To open the services console, click Start, type services.msc in the search box, and then press Enter. In the list of services on the left side of the screen, double-click to open the Diagnostics.
Method 3: Use WPR -cancels
In this method, you can use the WPR cancel command to remove a pending request. This is useful if you have a large number of requests that are not yet ready for processing and you want to free up some resources. You can also use it to clear out old requests from your queue when you no longer need them.
Enter the following line “wpr -cancel”at the Command Prompt and press Enter.
A similar issue that affected a huge number of users previously prompted us to produce a blog article outlining and identifying the most effective solutions. Before doing any of the actions outlined in this post, I would recommend attempting the steps outlined at. If the problem has not yet been resolved, try the following steps: system and memory compression

What does 100 disk usage mean
Disk space is measured in gigabytes (GB), megabytes (MB), kilobytes (KB), and bytes. Disk usage is the amount of storage space used on a computer system.
In general, the larger the number of files stored on a drive, the higher its capacity. For example, a 500 GB hard drive can hold approximately 5,000 songs, but only 1,500 songs can fit onto a 50 MB CD.
Click on the “System Summary” tab and look under the heading “Storage Usage.”
