I'm trying to free up space on my labtop and i'm doing a computer analysis on finding what is using up my computer. Tracing where all the memory is coming from and what is using up my space, i've come to find out that through my calculations i've discovered that i am suppose to have at least a gig left. But my computer says that i have barely any memory left to use. Whats going on? need help...

Not trying to be prideful here but i doubt that i had miscalculated. I checked.

Windows manages your memory constantly depending on what demands open programs and system processes place on it and uses memory for system processes and maintenance when other aps are not using memory.

Space and memory are two different things.

You can determine exactly what is taking space on the hard drive by using Windows Explorer - the size of every file if you want to.

How much ram do you have and what kinds of problems are you experiencing?
