After doing a lot of file management (backups, deletion of unnecessary files, defrag, etc) I was able to recover a substantial amount of space. When opening up Computer, I noticed that the size was only registering about 70GB free (out of 500). Knowing this couldn't be the case (I had found the directory my screen recorder saves to, apparently it records lossless avi at 1gb/minute) I did the usual right click on all the folders in root:\ and the size count was only 162GB, with hidden and system folders viewable. I found TweakNow PowerPack 10, which I had used for its Disk Usage Analyzer. That came up with only 94GB used.

After those installs, the disk size jumped to 94GB free.

Attached is the Systweak file structure (only root:\*, so nothing personally identifiable), the Active@ Hard Disk diagnostic (can't make much sense of it, I'm a computer guy but not that far into the really specific components), and the main Computer window and properties.

If you can make any sense of it, please let me know. Also, if you might need any other readings, just ask.

Thanks,

jmki1

Yeah, I do have a huge Users folder. It contains music docs vids contacts, all the usual stuff. About half is music and the other half is converted vids.

EDIT:
Oh and that last pic is just what happens when i highlight everything in root:\ and rmb click properties. My my docs folder is around 30gb
