Have a business desktop that out of the blue had memory problems yesterday. It has a 1 TB hard drive and I know it doesn't even have 100 GB of files yet (its not even 4 months old). I downloaded WinDirStat to see where the problem was and it shows a series of .etl files run the end of tuesday and in the morning on wednesday that spiked at the 811 GB file and then tappered back off the normal 155 KB size.
Not really sure what Im dealing with here. I research online and found that they are log files and one person said they can be deleted. I tried but Windows 7 says the files are being used by Windows Audio and can't be deleted.
I have no idea what this is nor how to address it. The computer is completely useless right now so any help would be nice. I put a screen shot of the WinDirStat info below.
