Hey all! So first my specs: Vista Home Premium SP2, AMD Phenom 9500 Quad-core Processor 2.20 GHz, 6GB RAM, 64 Bit OS.
Ok so the problem: My c:/ drive is filling up with unaccountable data. Seems like its lost 120+ GB in the last couple months! I ran WinStatDir and came up with about 290GB of "unknown" data. Ran disk cleanup, went to "restore and shadow copies" and erased all but recent. Gained about 12 GB. Did some research, then ran SpaceMonger (in administrator). Came up with up 284.4 GB of unscannable data in 2 folders: c:/SystemVolumeInformation and c:/windows/system32/logfiles/Wmi/RtBackup. the windows folder has about 6kb. System volume information contains about 285GB! It seems most people having this problem, it appears to be system restore backups. I've deleted them a couple times through disk cleanup now ,but the files in systemvolumeinformation persist. Any ideas if these are backups and if I can get rid of them? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
