First things to do:
1. Disable and immediately enable again System Restore. See http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/07/27/change-and-set-vista-shadow-copy-or-system-restore-disk-space-limit-in-explorer-gui/
2. Download (free) treesize from http://www.jam-software.com/freeware/index.shtml and use it to analyse the space used by all folders (and subfolders) on the drive.
3. Download ccleaner from http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner to delete a lot of temp file and such stuff.
Usually, this solves all riddles and answers all questions.
I need help, trying to figure out where my GB's have gone. When I open up My computer I see two Drives listed, 1 is OS (C)drive with 11.8 GB free of 62.2 GB and 2. the other is a Recovery drive (D) with 5.02GB free of 9.76GB, this is a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop running Vista Home Premium serv pack2.
This computer has all the Basics on it, Microsoft Office, etc. Was to be used only for school, no music, pics are saved on this computer and all docs have been removed/cleaned out. Have also removed small games, short of removing everything else what can be done to get GB's back. I know this is a small drive but the GB's should not be gone either. I have run all the clean up tools and it still only gave back maybe 4 extra GB's. What to do????
I eventually want to run WOW on this computer....
