    A quick check to do would be to look at your db recovery model for the ‘maintenance’ database(s) using SSMS. If it’s set to ‘Full’ (the default), then all your space is likely tied up in transaction log files. If it’s set to anything other than ‘Simple’, (and since it’s a test db), you can recover the disk space by simply running a backup of that database (which will remove all of the transaction log files), then change the recovery model to ‘simple’, and it will no longer create transaction log files.
