I deleted your other post in the Windows 7 forum because of the formatting problems with the post.
Since that was in the Windows 7 forum we assume this laptop is running Windows 7.
Hi. I cannot reconcile why my laptop appears to be running out of Hard Disc storage space. In the "my Computer" windows directory screen I am shown 60GB of 287 available but when I right-click Properties the size on disc reads 124GB. I would have expected this to read 227GB (287 - 60). I have been concerned for a while that something might be cashing my memory, or that a delete job hasn't worked. I have defragmented to no effect. Has anyone witnessed this before or knows of a solution. Or am I just looking at this too simplistically as I am a novice
