Re: C Drive Space Help
Partitioning your drive is separating your physical drive into smaller logical drives. I.E. having a 500GB Hard drive separated into two 250GB partitions. Since Windows is at least detecting the entire size of the C: drive, you don't need to partition at this point.
Do you have your computer set to automatically make backups? Windows Vista has "Shadow Storage" which it will not report the size of those files and this could be causing the large discrepancy in overall size and reported free space. To check this, press the Windows Key + R and type CMD to open a command prompt. Type in "vssadmin list shadowstorage" and press enter. See what the size of the shadowstorage space is.
Humans are the only creatures that won't live up to the their potential. Give everything your all. When you die, die on E.
So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?
