C Hard drive showing high usage.

Hiya All.

Does anyone know why my "C" partition should show a much higher usage than expected.

Right click on Properties on C shows a size of 4.3gb, but when you property each individual folder within the drive you only get 2.0g.

System Restore is turned off as soon as I re-install the op sys.

Are there hidden files on the drive being created some where...?

I have show all files in the tools option switched on.

Am I missing the plot somehow or the other.

Many Thanks for any Help.

hi there

yes you will probably have a partition with windows .cabs files on it

Thanks for your reply Madboy33.

The comp is self built, so unless XP pro generates a hidden Partition when it installs, not quite sure what the Cab file Partition you mention is about.

I split the H/Drive into 2 partitions using Fdisk
on setup, and having gone back into Fdisk to display the settings again they only show the 2 adding up to the correct ammount 40gb.
