My properties shows 5.57 GB used on my HD but I can only account for
2.4GB What is the balance?

Open up My Computer and choose Properties
The Bar-Graph you see is an accurate representation of whats used/not.

Have you un-hid system files?

System Restore and your Swap file are the culprits

Hi Colin,
Feel free to call in. Apart from the dentist today at 3.15, I will be home for the rest of the day and over the w/end.A look over my computer may be beneficial.
Cheers A.

Check for temporary files - sometimes they can really add up. Might be in different locations, check "Windows\Temp" folder and also under "Documents and Settings\each user\Local Settings\Temp" folders too. I regularly find large dumped files in here, especially with graphic apps crashing sometimes. Also - checked out recycle bin? Otherwise, its getting interesting I'd say. Are there other user accounts with hidden folders?
