I once had a similar thing happen on a 98 system a while ago, all I did was run the Error check and when it rebooted it was fine, although It could be slightly different, mine was saying that my hard drive was a lot smaller than what it actually is, not that the total amount of the normal size was taken up but anythings worth a try :thumbsup:

This is a program that will give you a graphical representation of all of the files on your system, scaled to how much room they're taking up. It will tell you pretty quickly what's taking up space on your system.

Well a windows install fully updated is nearly 5 gigs, so if you installed your new copy over your old one that is 10Gigs.

Your hard drive is not big enough. When I did a clean install of Windows XP SP2, It took 5 GB of space. Include some programs and your files and that should take more than 10 GB.
