When you have a bona fide bug like that you call Microsoft and ask about it. It's no charge for bug reporting.
-> Let's be clear here. There are bugs.
Okay, I am currently running Windows Vista Home Premium 6.0 Build 6001 Service Pack 1.
This has been going on for a long time now. Whenever I use disk cleanup to free up some empty space, it shows me that I can clear XXX Gigabytes off my hard drive. It used to say it can clean off 300+ gigabytes, now it says it can clean off 500+ gigabytes.
But my C drive is only 206 gigabytes.
The number shown doesn't seem to take up my hard drive space proportionally as the number increases.
I have already tried cleaning up before, it wiped nearly all my pictures, music, videos, and a whole lot of data out of my program files. Fortunately I canceled the operation half way when I realized something was wrong and recovered all the files with a backup file.
In disk cleanup, this tremendous amount of data is categorized
"Per user queued Windows Error Reporting Files".
I want to know what is wrong with this thing! If you need anymore information just ask and I'll tell you!
