I recently reinstalled xp and installed a few games and some utilities and I've noticed that my disk space is reading wrong in the C: properties. When I select all of the folders and files in c:\ it totals 64gb in total (hidden files included). But is c:\ properties it says I've used 127gb. I can't think where any other files or prgrams could be. Anyone know what I can do to get the correct reading?
On your drive you talk about hidden folders, some will be for system restore. there will also be many of the file logs related to the opening of programs, there will also be internet logs, update information etc.
