Ok... My C: Drive (Main Hard Drive) has a total capacity of 180 GB... It's now got lets see 40 GB worth of space left... The computer is performing slower, and seems to be losing a GB worth of space every day (i.e. 48, 47, 46, etc). I tried to figure out whether there was something ballooning in a particular folder, and I found out just yesterday that it is in the TEMP folder.

The program, I think, that is growing is "LSBurnWatcher". It is currently, 105 GB in size, and I'm not sure as to whether anything dire will happen to my computer if I delete it.

With that said... I do want to delete it, and I'm just wondering if I need that program.



EDIT: "LSBurnWatcher" is a Notepad Text Document.

LSBurnWatcher is HP software which helps one create labels after a music CD is burned using LightScribe disks.

I have never used it so I'm not sure. There may be an option within the program to clean out temp files.

Well it's been deleted and now I've got 151GB of free space.

I'm happier... And again. Thankyou for your assistance.

It is a worry that this file is a txt file though. Is this were a program it would be lsburnwatcher.exe

This a litle strange also that the file is so big. 105GB is a huge file and I have never seen any file of that size in my life Apart from databases of course. I would say delete it if this is a file that is needed I am sure it will be recreated if the file is a system file. I would say it could be a file that is created as a log or something like that. You can't keep the file if it is that big anyway so you may aswell delete it and if it stops the lightscribe program from working then uninstall and reinstall the lightscribe product. I am more concerned that it is in the temp directory. If it were for a program then it would be filed in Program files or something simular.

Anyway I would delete the file. If you are worried about it ruining your system take a backup first. Maybe a good idea to do this anyway.

Yeah... It was very worrying. And as you said, If it is a system file, no need to worry about deleting it.


Thanks guys, you've prevented me from getting stress, or heck, even calling in a computer tech (which cost money lol).


Cheers!
