well to be honist I don't know how the hell you could use 250GB it is a hell of a lot

of data put it this way I have all my files photos music and movies and software

total of 15,900.50 files and only used 99.9GB of it must be a problem.


do you use Ccleaner?


if so there is a function on there called disk wipe that saves the disk space not a

good idear but can be rectifed.


use this http://www.file.net/freeware/top100files.exe


to find out what is taken the space top 100 files most common is page file.sys as it

uses 4 gig or more depending on your settings.


Kind Regards

You must have some data that is taking that space, thats the only way it can happen. You might need to to bite the bullet and look at every file on the drive and see what is taking up what.
