Lost HDD Space
Hi I just bought an HP e9120y a week ago. When I got it and booted it up there was 871GB free space off of the 1TB HDD. I removed some of the junk programs that bestbuy or whoever puts on there. All the free trial things and such. That got me up to 872GB available. I put a few of my own programs on, Battlefield 2, AIM6, Firefox, COD4, WinRAR, Guild Wars client(game), Treesize(I'll explain) and Daemon tools. Total these programs files add up to 9GB.
I downloaded Treesize because it tells you where all your HDD space is being used up. When I run it and open the 'C:' folder for a scan it says its storing 43.74GB. At the bottom of the window it says Available space: 778GB of 917GB.
When I run the scan in the only other option folder, the backup drive 'D:' it says its storing 11.95GB.
These two drives together are 55.69GB. So 917GB-55.69GB should be 861GB. Which was where I was at when I was done installing all the programs I put on. After I shut it down that night and rebooted it the next mornig I was showing 712GB available. I couldn't figure out where it all went. I let it go for the day. Shut it down that night, rebooted then next morning and I was down to 778GB. As I am writing this I just checked my HDD and it now says I have 767GB available.
