Last I checked, my HP Netbook had about 7 gigs of space left. So, I decided to delete 4 gigs worth of files I wasn't using. That would be it, or so I assumed. Next day, without downloading anything massive (just a few pictures), yet I check my harddrive space available, and it says 6.45 gigs left. I don't know why this could be happening. I ran a Malwarebytes scan, nothing malicious showed up, so its not a virus. I am on an open network with my brother's PC, so that might be it, but I can't be so sure. If more information about my PC is requested, I will provide it.

Computer does that some times. It may because your computer is using virtual memory or some things have been saved in the temp folder.
If you reset your computer you might see it change again.
