It must have been about 3 years since I last formatted my system, but I’ve got so much stuff installed and with various settings just how I like them, I can’t bring myself to formatting and starting from scratch. I realise the problems that come with not formatting for so long, but I can usually sort these problems out without having to format. One such problem I can’t figure out is where all my hard drive space has gone. I have two hard drives in my machine. A 40gb C drive is where I install Windows and all other programs and a 150gb D drive where I keep music, pictures, downloads, etc. I only have 8gb of space available in my C drive. If I hold the cursor over the C drive it tells me what space I have available, so I go into the drive and hold the cursor over each folder to try and narrow down what’s taking up all the space. I’ve managed to narrow it down to the Documents and Settings folder which contains three other folders; Administrator, All Users and Gary Brown. The ‘Gary Brown’ folder is 17.6gb in size, but when I navigate in the folder all other subfolders and files don’t add up to much more than a few hundred megabytes.
Somethings eaten a big chunk of my hard drive, but I can’t see what.
