I have a 28.6GB hard drive, and when I check the properties of C: it shows about 27.4GB used space and about 1.1GB free space. The problem is, I'm not really using nearly that much space. I've moved all of our music, pictures, etc. to an external hard drive, or else we would have run completely out of space by now. Yesterday I ran 4 separate disk analysis programs (Disktective, JDiskReport, WinDirStat, and Spacemonger), and they all showed the same amount of free space left, but they only showed usage of about 11GB.
What is happening?! I've read through all the other threads I can find on this topic, but nothing has helped. I've run CCleaner, I've unchecked "hide protected operating system files, I've run disk cleanup, I've turned off system restore, I've checked partitions (it shows 2 - one has 31MB and the other has 28.6GB). I've probably tried other stuff, but I can't remember now.
Any ideas?! Thanks a lot!
