Hard Drive Full After format and installation of Windows
Posted on 2004-11-04
For the past week out of no where all of the free space on my hard drive on my computer was gone and I kept getting Low Disk Space warning from Windows. I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 with a 20 GB hard drive. I am running Windows XP Professional SP2. At first I thought I had a virus but Norton did not find anything and neither did Housecall. Everything had been running pretty slow anyway so I decided to format the drive and re-install Windows. I reinstalled Windows, Office XP, AIM, WinAmp, and the drivers for my hardware. When I went to install Nero, it said I was low on disk space again. Does anybody have any ideas? Before I thought it was a virus but now I am starting to think the hard drive is going bad. I have not called Dell's tech support yet but I plan to eventually if I dont find anything out here. It is my personal laptop but I am using it at work until I get a new one that should be here in about a week or so, so this it pretty urgent. Thanks for any help you can offer me.
