Hard drive mystery

  ambuman1 23:49 09 Aug 2006

My 40g hardrive had 27g free space on my last check. However, whilst running my Registry Mechanic programme I was told Windows was shutting down because of a fatal error. On restart, the computer was extemely reluctant to do anything and on checking my HD it now says I have 1.4% free and the free space shown before is now full of fragmented files. Can anyone help with this mystery?

sounds to me like a virus, have you run an av scan? in safe mode if necessary

Sounds more like a corrupt drive table. run error check. set options to fix all. But it may not work with such a small amount of space. you could try a system restore
