Hello, I have an Elitebook 8770w Workstation, which came with 2 additional HDDs built into it. I've recently taken my laptop to Geek Squad and after getting it back, my E: drive has lost a lot of disk space. It went from having more space than my C: drive, down to about 2G and I can't figure out why or how to get my space back. Any suggestions?

Download WindirStat to see what space is being used on the drive. I would also make sure System Restore is not enabled on the data drive.
