Ever decreasing hard drive?

  lisa02 19:02 10 Feb 2008

Why would hard drive space disappear, without doing or adding anything?

System Restore can use a lot of disk space,

And do you use Norton Security


  lisa02 19:08 10 Feb 2008

No to Norton,

To put it into perspective there's nothing I've done and 3 gig vanished.

and it's reporting I've used about 110GIG...

I've a handful of games on at the minute and 10 gig worth of files, that can't be right.

Try reducing the amount used by Restore to 7 or 8 % of drive partition. You can turn it off on other than boot partitioon

I turned it off and 70GIG reappeared!

Don;t forget to turn it back on again,

  lisa02 19:21 10 Feb 2008

I will do sometime soon ;)

Thanks guys, with the bugs I had with with RAID software I thought my HDD/s where dying or something.

Hi if you turn it back on you will not lose the 70GB again,

  woodchip 21:23 10 Feb 2008

AS above it takes time to build back up

I counted the number of restore points previously and when I turned it on... it seems to take just over 3gb of space for one.
