Changes in free disk space?

  Big Dave 20002 19:52 04 Mar 2004

My computer running Win. XP Home 1.3 Athlon Processror,512SDRAM 40 Gig Drive
Last night I had approx 20.5 gigs free. This morning I appear to have only 12.5Gigs.
I have not downloaded any files or programmes.
Anybody any clues ???

I read in PC ADISOR the answer to this some months ago but can't find the answer now. If some kind person could give me the answer or tell me which issue of PC ADVISOR it was in I can look it up.

Thanks in advance
