Hi

I have a Windows 2003 SP1 server. The C drive is 25 GB in size.  Apparently only about 200 kb is left as free space, however the cumalative size of all the files/folders/subfolders in the C drive (including pagefile.sys) is only 10Gb. I have set the displays to show hidden files, and OS files etc.

Does anyone have any idea what is taking up so much space?

Urgent so max points!

Read my link - I discuss changing the settings - If you have it enabled on C: you'll need to disable it then change the location of the copies then reenable it.
