Disappearing Drive Space

  realist 13:09 14 Apr 2006

On my one-month old XP 200GB pc I had the following drive space reported by Belarc two weeks' ago:

C drive: 185.69 / 174.44 free

Now, only two weeks' later it shows as:

C drive: 185.69 / 134.94 free

This means I've used up 39.5GB in two weeks....?

What does this mean as I my old w98se pc had a total drive space of 12.7GB and I only ever used half of that....?

OK I have a total of about 1GB music and videos but that's all.

Have you installed any software at all?

made a full install of Works Suite 2006 but that wouldn't use up 39GB

Try SequoiaView click here to identify the program/folder that is using all the space.

Thanks gudgulf.
That did the trick. The space is taken by two massive .TMP files from a chat program my daughter tried to d/l but took so long she gave up on it. I just recovered 33GB!
