I can understand "52% free space", but I don't understand "52% fragmented space" and I really don't understand the "so" in the "so now I only have 6% free space".
Things I should do:
1. run chkdsk on the drive
2. look at free and occupied space in the properties of the c:-drive
3. empty my recycle bin
4. download I.DISK or TREESIZE or CLDUW (all free) to see in what space each folder (and subfolder) occupies (and total the folders to see what's missing).
5. clear all system restore points
6. repeat 2
to get a clear view of the situation.
May I suggest you do the same and post your findings?
I have a very serious problem. I would use my original disk defragmenter over and over on my laptop, and all of a sudden, I noticed that when I had 52% free disk space, that went to 52% fragmented space, so now I only have 6% free space on my laptop. I am trying to figure out how do I make this change. I dont want all of my fragmented files to take up that much space, I guess the fact that I kept using it caused that to happen. I don't understand how 52% of my free disk space all of a sudden went to 52% of fragmented files, with only 6% of free space. That is terrible, because I need more free space than that. So, I am trying to figure out how I can gain back my 52% free disk space, without freeing up the space that I have now, if you understand what I'm trying to say. I've also tried using Disk Keeper, but so far the results are the same. Now, I've downloaded Perfect Disk, but have not tried it yet. Someone please help me. I have a laptop- Dell Inspiron 2200 with Windows XP.
