Hi. I recently restored my acer aspire 5920 laptop back to factory settings and I am having some problems. I have 250G hard drive but it is split in two. It came that way. But after I restored it when I check on my free space it says that my data drive (drive D) has used almost 20G of space. When I explore it nothing is there. I dont know how to find out what is on that drive and why I can not see it. Could someone tell me how to figure this out? Thanks guys.......... Colleen

It may be your recovery partition. How big is that partition?

Hi. I dont know. I opened disk management and this is what it says:

Disk O ACER (C:) DATA (D:)
Basic
232.88GB 10.40GB 111.69GB NTFS 107.56GB NTFS Healthy 3.24GB
online Healthy (EISA configuration) Healthy (system, boot, page file, Healthy (primary partition) Healthy(EISA conf)
active, crash dump,
primary partition)


Hopefully you understand what all this is. Out of the 107.56GB on D: , I only have 91.4GB free and I dont have anything on it. When I explore it there are no files or hidden files that I can see. Thanks for your help. Colleen

If you have it, that's most likely where your hidden space on D is.
