I clear out a big game a few gigs at a time and 30 mins to an hour later i lose a gig or more on my hardrive without doing anything. I dont no what to do. I could definately use some help. I check how many gigs are on my hardrive and its 4 gigs but when i check next time its 2 gigs without doing something to add gigs. All I have done is search the internet or play video games. I need more space because there are some cool video games coming out and i dont have much space left on my hardrive.

On a wb page, click tools, internet options, advanced to tick empty temporary internet files when browser is closed, tick apply, close the browser.

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, press more options, click system restore clean up, click OK

And clean out your recycle bin too, if you haven't. It's easy to forget to do that when removing files. You should always do it before defragmenting too.

Download SpaceMonger to see where a map of your drive, this will tell you where all the HDD space is going.
If you need any help, you can attach a SpaceMonger screenshot for the drive you lost the space.
