I am using an Asus G74series computer
i7 processor, 16gb RAM, 64-bit Windows 7
I have a 279gb hard drive and I have been attempting to free up space as there is only 30.5gb free.
C: Properties is telling me that I am using 248gb of space but this simply cannot be the case. I have spent quite a bit of time on forums trying to diagnose the problem (Ran Disk Cleanup, ran CCleaner, tried to Defragment, I do not use system restore or backup, my recycling bin is empty, hibernation file is relatively small, etc)
I ran WinDirStat to see if I could figure out why I have so much space used up and the program only displays 120.5gb of space used up on my C: drive, which begs the question where is the other 128gb of space?
I am relatively tech savy meaning I can usually find the answers I am looking for in forums but it is baffling to me that my C: drive says I'm using 248gb when really I am only using about 120gb. Any help would be much appreciated!
