Today suddenly about 15GB of space went missing from my C drive.
My C drive properties say there's 72GB of used space. http://i.imgur.com/m4zMQrV.jpg
But after selecting all files on C (including hidden and system files) it's about 57GB. http://i.imgur.com/RlmCT5O.jpg
Where could have the missing 15GB gone and how to recover them?
- Windows Vista 32-bit, fully updated.
- Antivirus: Avast.
- I didn't do anything strange before the space had gone missing. Just the usual like browsing the Internet (only safe sites that I've been visiting for years). Actually, I think it's happened right after I used the Window's search engine to find a document on drive D.
- This curious occurence only applies to my C drive. The other two are unaffected. And the three particions are parts of the same hard drive.
- I tried googling the problem, but nothing came up. That may be because of my poor wording though.
Oh, and I tried using CCleaner, but that only helped to reclaim about 1GB.
