Disk space floating away

My hard drive is showing a continous drop in space, but nothing is running in the back ground or foreground.

Also I'm running real slow. This is the only thing I've changed:

I just changed my dvd drive, but I don't see how that would affect anything. My hard drive jumper is cable connect and this new disk drive is set on master, but different cables. The old one was set to cable connect so should I set the new disk drive jumper to cable connect?

make it go away, please.

Actually, when there are 2 on the same cable your best bet is to set the jumpers to 'master' and 'slave' accordingly.

I don't see how that could slow down your computer, but see if changing the jumpers helps any. Personally it sounds like you've got some pests on board.
