Hi, I'm new to this site. I have a Dell Inspiron 1750 with Windows 7 installed and the internal hard drive is slowly filling up. I've tried everything to get it back up to speed. I've deleted shadow copies, ran a disk reformat, and out of paranoia, I downloaded Rkill and Malwarebytes to see if I had some kind of virus. I come back clean. I'm not installing anything, so if someone would please tell me why this is happening, I would greatly appreciate it. I had 179 GB after deletting shadow copies. Today it's down to 178, and just now it went to 177. I seem to be losing a gigabyte a day. Can anyone tell me why? Thanks!
