SEPM taking spaces

Today i got a lot of email warning from one of our server that says Database is down! After checking the problematic server i see the C drive is in red state and the drive is full (100 GB), very strange as i don’t install quite a lot software on this server as it only serve as SEPM server, finally checking the folder and what surprise me is the data folder of SEPM is taking quite a lot of space (51.9 GB for himself). After checking Symantec community forum, a lot of users also complaining about this problem also and this is a known issue and is being worked on by Symantec (link to KB article). For a while please use this script under your command prompt until Symantec solve this problem

forfiles -p "C:Program Files (x86)SymantecSymantec Endpoint Protection ManagerdataoutboxImportPackage" -s /D -2 /C "cmd /c del @path"
