My C drive lately has been acting odd. Im afraid it is dying. I have over two-thirds free on my C drive (which is 110GB). Yesterday free space (according to Windows) was at zero bytes. I started deleting programs and stuff I didnt need and got a few gigs back. Then later on yesterday the total free space jumped back up to normal. Today I am having the same problem again. Today though I can see it fluctuating. The total is slowly going down as I watch! I have tried scandisk (which told me no probs were present), HDDLife Pro (Which said health for the drive was 51%), but when I try defraging I get an error "Defragmentation has been aborted due to inconsistancies that were detected in the file system." I have run a complete virus scan (with ewido) and turned up nothing. Any help would be greatly appeciated!

Thanks for the reply,

Ran Checkdisk, took _forever_, afterwords reported system was "clean". When the computer rebooted, all of the space on the C drive is back! :whistling: Is there a virus that slowly eats free space, or is my drive near the end of its life?

First, look under winlogon under APPLICATIONS

hit the copy button and paste your next post

also, Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

nothing in there indicates your drive is failing

though you are low on space and system restore points are not being created.

You should consider backing up files you do not use and clearing some space...

Files are backed up. Under normal operating conditions I have 83.1gb of free space. I have this much when I turn on the computer. But it slowly dissapears after 10-15 hours. No odd programs seem to be running, no spyware/malware. Any idea on how to search for individal files by size to maybe catch a bloated file? I read that a defective Mac created a 35gig error log. Il keep trying and see what happens.

Thanks

That is the coolest! (linux has a space analyzer thats free :whistling:) When I used it though the trouble space showed up as "unscanned." When I click "show unscannable folders" It does not list anything. This is getting more and more interesting, and would be great to study if I didn't use the computer all the time. :blink:

Going to use this as a thought blog for a moment:

virus/malware? no, Ewido, panda was -

faulty hard drive? no, HDDlife reports 53% health (53% is a little low IMHO)

cancerous file? no, Spacemonger reports no file in the unscanned space and gives no reason to why space is unscanned

Ran chkdsk and nothing unusual appeared, but

When I try to run the defragmenter it returns an error, "Defragmentation has been aborted due to inconsistancies that were detected in the file system."

The only conclusion I could make is maybe the two antivirus programs missed a virus. I will try a few others and will appreciate any other help (if any) that you might have. Thank you for the help.

I'd run chkdsk again

the problem you are reporting is a filesystem error--something is corrupting it

Most of the time, this occurs due to incomplete or errors during read and writes. You didn't list any errors that scream failing drive....do you know if write behind caching is enabled?

What kind of motherboard is this ?

write behind caching is enabled. Mobo is a Mach Speed V6FP KM266 Socket A with a AMD Athlon 2400+ Thoroughbred OCed to a 2600+.

I will run chkdsk again after I finish this BitDefender scan, probably tomarrow (chkdsk takes a looooong time)

Ok, chkdsk is not working. Last time I ran it (the first time in this post) I watched it until I went to bed. During that time 3 out of 5 test had completed. The fourth, Verifying File Data had only got to 8%. It sat there for awhile, but I figured that that was normal. When I checked it the next day, the computer had restarted. (I could tell cause I am running Ubuntu Linux and it auto-loaded from the bootloader) I thought the test had finished since I got what looked like a complete report.

I ran it again last night and had the same thing happen. It stops at 8%. I could keep an eye on it last night and it never changed for hours. I finally restarted the computer myself. What could this mean?

I dont know how HDDLife works (if the health fluctuates or what) but it is reporting 51% now.

Follow up and resolution of this problem:

I had wracked my brain trying to find the cause of this, for it seemed very odd. I had installed and used a shell replacement, Aston, and some setting in this caused the problem. This is the second time I have tried this shell, the first time I didn't like it, but I decided to give it another shot after getting sick of microsofts stupid confinements. It goes without saying that I will never try this particular shell replacement again. Thanks for the help gerryf and sorry it took so long to post results.
