Windows 7 Hard Drive Full
Posted on 2014-07-19
I'm hoping for a really quick answer to this as I need to get some work done and can't. I'm using Windows 7 and have semi-autonomous admin rights (it's a work machine and has been "optimised"). My hard drive is almost full and I even got to the stage of zero bytes free at some point.
The drive is 300GB and I've had a look at a number of folders to see what's causing the problem, but can't find anything. My Documents is 32 GB, Program Files is 10 GB, Progam Data is 4 GB and so on. I can't see enough, cumulatively, to figure out what's taking up all the space.
I've run chkdsk in Dos and it reparsed some EA files (whatever that means!), but it hasn't solved the problem. I have Sophos up and running (work's choice, not mine).
I'm at a loss! I don't know where else to look but it seems that something isn't right. Please can someone help me as quickly as possible?
