My son has a laptop, compaq, that has a 215GB hard drive. Not counting the partitions for the OS and the recovery, it is choc o block full. I managed to free up 10 gigs through the downloads folder and such but I cannot find the mystery 150 gigs of data and I have searched that thing. I am tempted to copy all his data to an external drive and reinstall the OS. BUT, since I am still a learnin, I thought it would be interesting to solve the mystery. Any thoughts on where else to search?
When I say I searched through everything, I mean file by file even through the sys32. I never found anything above a few hundred megs. I figured it was either a log file gone amuck or the boy downloading large game files but I cant find a smoking gun file or collection of files that come remotely close to 5 gigs let alone 150.
It will be interesting to see whats up.
