Hard Drive Full

glophillips1 used Ask the Experts™
My hard drive states it is full last month it was not even close.  I have transfer folders and files to external drive and very little space removed.  I had this problem before and I think it had something to do with Sage 50.  My drive looked full and then everything was back to normal.  Any suggestions?

Sage may be making local backups or have too many local temporary files.

I use Tree Size (Jam Software) for this.

Get a trial copy, install it and look at your space usage.  See if Sage or some other application is causing the space utilization.
So details of the disk please and a screen shot from Disk Admin?

The best two tools for Visualising where your storage space is being consumed are TreeSize ( https://www.jam-software.com/freeware/ ) and WinDirStat ( https://windirstat.net/ )

I have used both, they both do the job, but i prefer WinDirStat's UI
