Recently I ran chkdsk and when it was all over with I logged on to windows and noticed it was taking longer than usual to load my account, after that i went to my computer to check how much disk space I had and it was lower than it was the day before, it went from 40GB to now only 2.48GB. Where did all my free space go ?

What did CHKDSK report in Event Viewer after you ran it?
