Where has all my Hard Drive space gone?

  M Girl 19:58 08 Mar 2009

My laptop has started to tell me that I'm running low on Hard Drive space and I can't understand why.

I've looked at all the places I have saved stuff and they don't come any where near to taking up the space of my whole Hard Drive.
The programmes I have on it wouldn't bring it any where close either.

And what's even more confusing is that the folder I keep most of my big stuff in (videos etc) it is saying has over double the amount in it than it actually does.
I really don't get it.

Has this happened to anyone else?
Does anyone know why this is happening or what i can do about it?

How do I look up exactly where all the space has gone?

Thank you for taking the time to read this!
Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried turning off system restore and resizing the %age drive space it uses...

Just try my Computer.properties.And it will show you how much free space and how much used space that you have,
