Ok here's something that I just noticed on my Win7 Professional machine that I hope someone can explain:
My 32-bit machine has a hard drive partitioned into two partitions, one for the OS (73,2GB) and the other for files (159GB).
If I view the properties for my OS partition it says that I have 57.2GB used and 15.9GB free.
The issue is that when I open that partition and add up all contents from all the folders, I only have a total of 18GB.
Why does it state that I have used 57.2GB?
I have run Disk Cleanup for both partitions, checked the fragmentation (OK) and have run various spyware, malware & antivirus software and come up clean.
Anyone have any ideas why I am getting what seems to be erroneous info on the properties of the OS partition?
