Windows Build Runs out of space

I’m currently getting out of space errors, e.g.:

LINK : fatal error LNK1201: error writing to program database 'C:\Users\travis\build\mellery451\rippled\nih_c\ninja\MSVC_19.16.27034.0\Debug\src\grpc_src-build\third_party\benchmark\test\report_aggregates_only_test.pdb'; check for insufficient disk space, invalid path, or insufficient privilege


We start off the bat with only 11G available:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
C:/program files/git   70G   60G   11G  85% /

After installing some pre-reqs (vcpkg and boost), we are down to 6.2g:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on=
C:/program files/git   70G   64G  6.2G  92% /

this leaves not a lot of overhead for our rather large build. I can look into cleaning artifacts in vcpkg, but I’m not sure that will be enough for us. Any advice?
