I was extracting a .rar file that was about 183 MB, it must of been extremely compressed or something went wrong. About half way through my computer warns me of low disk space, I had over 10GB left when i started and it was now at 300MB.
So I canceled the extraction at the half way point, only I didn't get the space back, didn' t get anything back really. The folder WinRar was extracting to had two pictures in it, deleted those and the folder.
Did a search that turned up nothing, defraged the drive, error checked it all that gave me back about 100MB.
So what happened? there some 10GB folder hidden somewhere?
