A few days ago I noticed that half of about 100 gigs was filled up. Then a days later I'm down to just under a hundred MB. Now, when I start up my comp I have around 80, that starts going down as I used it then jumps back up to 40 MB or so periodically. Often times, If I go into my computer and refresh while I can see drive C, the disk space will incrementally go down with every refresh.

Needless to say, I need help to figure this out.

Use the following tool to take a detailed look at space being used by files.

WinDirStat - http://download.cnet.com/WinDirStat/3000-2...4-10614593.html

Anything unusual?

Do you have System Restore enabled?

Have you emptied the Recycle Bin on the desktop?
