Last night I moved a lot of data in the C drive to the D drive to create space as it was nearly full on my laptop. It meant that I now had just over 11GB free as a result.
Just turned on my laptop and it has gone down to 8.8GB and is still going down as a type and I've done nothing om it either. It would appear there are some process or processes running in the background that is using up the GB?. How can you tell or stop it?
I don't understand why this drive had used up its capaticy so quickly as we are not heavy users.
When you say C and D drives do you mean partitions on the same drive? As it is a laptop hibernation is a must, as well as pagefile. Windows 7 is a master at allocating space for both these files in the root system. Your space was cramped before so you moved data to the D: partition so Win 7 simply expanded what space it has for hibernation and pagefile. You say you're not heavy users but how much photos, music and documents do you store? I'd be thinking of an external usb hard drive for keeping all your documents, etc, as I think your hard drive is near to full, or your C: partition anyway. Check in Computer.
