I am having a problem whereby my disk is reporting as FULL (123MB
remaining on a 18.6GB drive)
When I add up the sizes of the files on the drive, it comes to just
under 13GB. Even adding in space reserved for system restore, this
takes it to 15GB
Running disk clean-up, it shows that it should recover approximately 2GB.....but after running and even rebooting, the available space
jumped up to only about 400MB....and then on subsequent reboot when
back to only 123MB.
How can I find out what is taking up the free space on the drive and
You can use SequoiaView, to view the contents of your disk.
It uses colored rectangles, to represent files. And that may
make it easier to spot a "hog".
I was running a piece of software yesterday, that was doing a
download, and yet the file was not stored in the temp directory.
Using Sequoiaview, and doing a "refresh", I was able to spot where
the file was actually being stored by that program.
You could have some software installed, which is making hidden
copies of stuff. Think about any special software you've installed.
