Lost hard drive memory
Posted on 2004-04-17
for some reason I appear to be missing a big chunk of my hard drive! I am running Windows XP home with a 3.06mhz porcessor, 1024 MB Ram and an 80GB hard drive. However mysteriously I know only have 7% of my hard drive space availabe! This all happened in the blink of an eye and I have no idea how to get it back. I've tried a system restore and deleted all previous points but that hasn't freed anything up. Add/remove programs has the bare minimum in it and I've also tried the clean disk options with no effect as its still showing as 7%. Prior to this happening the stats were the other way round I was only using about 8%!
Please can someone tell me whats happened - can't even run a defrag because it needs at least 15% to run :o(
