Computer tech guy here, deal more with networking and setting up hardware/software for restaurants. I do a lot of downloading and keep a tab on my space and how much I have left. I have done nothing out of the ordinary and my HD went to being completely full. Is there any programs out there that can tell me what was installed/downloaded to my PC and when? I deleted the bulk of my usual stuff I download(music) and I'm still only at like 80gb of free space when I was at 200 couple days ago.


  Operating System
   Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
   Intel Core i3 3220 @ 3.30GHz 33 °C
   Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology
   8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
   Dell Inc. 0XR1GT (CPU 1) 28 °C
   DELL 1907FP (1280x1024@60Hz)
   DELL E228WFP (1680x1050@60Hz)
   Intel HD Graphics (Dell)
   2048MB ATI AMD Radeon R7 200 Series (XFX Pine Group) 27 °C
   CrossFire Disabled
   465GB Seagate ST500DM002-1BD142 (SATA) 38 °C
   14GB SanDisk Cruzer Glide USB Device (USB)


Let me know if you need anything else.

Download WindirStat and see if you can determine what is filling the drive.




Edit: I don't know if this software is compatible with Windows 10.

I just figured it out, was my erroneous backup I made to the same drive I was backing up. Didn't realize the file was over 220GB. Thank you though.
