I have just upgraded my operating system to Vista Ultimate, Service Pack 1. I noticed my 230 GB hard drive had only 50 GB left and so I looked at it with the program Spacemonger. It identified one folder taking up 100 GB as unscannable, C:\windows\CSC. I looked in Explorer at this folder and it says there are no files in it and no bytes are taken up. I researched this folder and found it to be the Offline Sharing Cache. I turned off Offline Sharing and hoped that would do the trick, but it did not. I have performed several disk checks, virus scans with McAfee and Spybot. Nothing doing.
I need help narrowing down the possibilities:
1) Is Vista hoarding space for some stupid and unknown reason?
2) Do I have 100GB of bad sectors on my hard drive?
3) Am I being attacked by a nasty virus?
I appreciate any help you can give me.
