Disk space disappearing


Recommended Posts

My PC has suddenly and mysteriously lost a large quantity of disk space since yesterday.

Saturday night, when I went to bed: c.60GB

Shortly after I turned it on today, 8GB, then 5GB, then 1GB.

Clear out my C drive and downloads, and it's up to 167GB...only to go down to 122.

Does anyone else have this problem, and if so, how do I fix it?

Might be worth trying a disk tidy-up using your anti-virus software. I use Norton and there is an option under performance. There is also a microsoft option which can be accessed via the control panel.

You might have been hacked, possibly someone has created a partition and dumped a load of stuff on it and hidden it from you.

 

Or it could simply be a programme caching , are you using any video  or image editing software, anything that's resource hungry? 

 

Empty your pre fetch folder, download a cleaner, run defrag, download a hard drive scanner software etc.
