View Full Version : Losing disc space?

How come i keep losing disc space when i don't even install anything?
I was on 13.5GB now i am on 11.6 GB and haven't installed anything new. Why is this? I tried using system restore but that just made me lose more GB and then tried disk defrag and lost even more. What can i do to get this space back?

Hi Sylvester,

Every time you turn your computer on, it creates temp files etc. Do some surfing, and you compile even more. Do a clean up on a regular basis either using a free download program or the default program that came with your Operating System. Find you default one under Start/ Programs/ Accessories/ System Tools.

Keep your system restore points to a minimum. You probably only need three of them. Dont keep too many as they use a lot of space.

I hope that helps.

Cheers.

Don't worry now i found out that it was my system restore thing. I just went into disc cleanup and more options then clean up and system restore. There was 2.0+ GB in there.
