The computer is Windows XP, 60 gb hard drive (really 51) and the hard drive is almost full. It shows it using 34 GB of the 51 GB. Did some calculating and found that Windows folder is 9.1 GB, Documents and Settings folder shows as 6.5 GB and Program files is 4.5, and then most everything else is very little, either MB or KB. So I come up with about 20 GB, but where is the other 14 GB? I did all of the deleting temp files,etc. Is there any particular folders that something might be continually running and consuming space? I ask that because I had an old laptop and went file by file with a side by side comparison with another computer and finally came across a McAfee file that had consumed like 18GB. This was on a computer that had a 30 GB hard drive. The owner used it for only email and so no additional music/pics or document files. basically what came on the computer, i.e. Windows and program files. I deleted that one file and got back all kinds of space. So I have to wonder if something similar is happening and I was wondering if someone had any ideas of where to look? Thanks for reading.
