Default Need help with rd drive biking up!

Ok I have to admit I am completely confused I have my computer backing up to two external hard drives one set sync the other is set to back up at 1 am daily I had almost no room left on my computer hard drive so I manually transferred a lot to the back up drive and it freed up several hundred GB's of room this morning My computer internal hard drive was back down to almost nothing How is this possible?Is it somehow backing up one of the external hard drives? Would anyone know how I can stop this from happening Thank you

You could try a utility called WinDirStat that will graphically show you which files/folders are using the most disk space and help you pinpoint what is causing your drive to fill up.

Did you try running WinDirStat?

Have you been able to identify what files/folders are causing your disk to fill up?
