I have an interesting issue that I pray SOMEONE here can help me with. About two weeks ago, I noticed that I have been randomly losing hard drive space on my C:\ drive on my desktop PC. How much space I lose varies, sometimes 2 or 3 GB over the course of several hours, sometimes 10 GB in 10 minutes. I have tried everything I can personally think of to fix this or figure it out besides reformat and reinstall, including full scan with malwarbytes, quick scan with avast, scan with TDSSkiller, chkdsk, fiddling with and replacing the SATA cable, disc cleanup, and even disk defragment (which made me lose 15 GB for some reason.) I have gone down from having around 130 GB space remaining of 450 GB usable, to now only having 48 GB left, and have no clue if I will continue to lose space. I currently have the machine off and unplugged and am just using my laptop till I can have someone look at it. Strangest thing is, I downloaded windirstat and scanned the drive with it, and it says I am only using 246 GB, and says nothing about the missing 200 GB. If anyone knows what's going on here (and has a solution besides reformat and reinstall), please let me know soon.
