Hi, I have a relatively new sony viao. My biggest programs/files I have installed on it is 8GB of itunes & 6GB worth of photos. I am supposed to have 179GB of hard drive..........I have LESS than 1GB free!! I have searched & searched for files??? I can be browsing the internet & not using anything else & this figure changes?! On start up I check & it can say I have 4GB free of 179GB.......an hour later I will get all the usual 'low disc space' pop ups & there is less than 1GB??!
Someone suggested that I may have a rogue file.....but how do I identify it if this is the case? I'm not convinced it is this......but what else could be happening?
There is no restrictions on user accounts & file space available.
Run system tools/disk cleanup and choose "more options" and "clean up system restore and shadow copies". This will delete all but the most recent restore point and usually claims back a lot more free space.
Hi, I've discovered by using that great little link above that ProgramData/Symantec/Backup is using 113GB of space!! How can this be correct & why is it? I have online data storage which my Norton 360 uses to backup?
Can I just delete this file? All the other subfolders within Symantec are listed but have nothing in them.
