There is an area where internet temporary files are being saved, and some applications make backups automatically.  Without knowing what's on your system, I suggest you use a utility like Treesize Pro http://www.jam-software.com/treesize/ to see what the largest files are.

Another tool I like for seeing where your disk space is going is SPACEMONGER.    It visually shows you where the space is going.

It helps to understand what is taking up the space before you blindly start deleting stuff.

Also, if you're running Windows XP, try this:

START MENU....   ALL PROGRAMS....  ACCESSORIES....  SYSTEM TOOLS.....  DISK CLEANUP.

That's the Disk Cleanup Wizard, and will help free up junk that's unnecessary, like tempory files and other things.

Make sure you do not have an open FTP server running and someone is tucking loads of data deep in your file structure. There is also a hack out there, comes in via FTP, that creates folders with a space in the front of them. This makes the files not viewable by windows. If you boot to NTFSdos you can see the folders, but you can't delete them. This is, most likely, way beyond your problem, but I had it happen a few years back and I WILL NEVER open up FTP without knowing exactly what is going on.

How much space are you losing?  Do you think that it's because of virtual memory or System restore points?
