Hard Disk Usage

    I have just been tidying up my hard disk at home, as it had got rather full, and I noticed that there is about 15 Gb of used space that I cannot account for.  This is based on the difference between looking at the overall properties of the C: drive, and then each of the folders inside it.

    I have checked that it is including hidden files etc, and my virtual memory is only set to 1.5Gb.

    Any suggestions would be very gratefully received.

    You could try to use a tool called HDGraph (http://hdgraph.sourceforge.net/). It shows you graphically which folders/subfolders take up how much space.
    It helped me to find 7GB of unnecessarily used space on my C drive. Wink

    Which OS is installed?

    If it's Vista then maybe this space is occupied by shadow copies and/or search index.

    Xp Home edition, haven't got around to upgrading yet.
