My laptop has a 40gb hd with 2 partitions.
Used space in dsk c: according to properties is 5.03 Gb and 12.49 free space.
Disk Space reporter reads 4.17 gb of used space So were did the .86 gb of space went.
In Disk d: sometimes has been up to 2 gb of difference. right now I reformatted.
When defraging dsk d: I have read many A???????.exe or .dll files which cannot be located or seen by any other program but the defrag client. When I detected this the first time I called my technician who advised to reformat which I did.
I have reformatted my D: partition 3 times. due the reading of this files by defrag. I have run several antivirus, spyware, maleware, and everything comes clean. no infections detected. But it is very weird that my disk space starts to disappear for some invisible files.
Please advice. Any help to understand or get rid of this problem will be highly appreciated
I already posted in the thread Am I infected? and after following instruction the person who helped concluded that it might not be a maleware problem.
