I do not check my computer's resources in any regular or methodical way. I don't know enough about them to interpret anything other than the basics.
The computer, a laptop, is now about 3 1/2 years old, a Sharp PC-GP10-CH. The hard disk is a nominal 40GB, divided into drives C: 29.29GB and D: 7.94GB.
For much of the the time the free space on C: has languished in the low 20'sGB, drive D: remained unused. Recently the free space in drive C: has dropped dramatically. When this happened I don't know. As I say, I don't check this regularly.
Right now, I do and seem to be losing 0.1GB per day, that's 100MB isn't it? I'm now down to 11.2GB.
I use my computer mostly for work. Most of that being spreadsheet stuff. I copy all my files once/twice a day on the computer, but, even I know, that doesn't amount to much.
I've tried searching for unusually large files, but cant seem to find anything unusual.
The only unusual event that has occurred, was a 'crash' a few months ago - a system config. file went missing, preventing me going beyond the opening start up screen. This was fixed by a local technician and the machine has worked normally ever since.
I've dumped any unnecessary programs, I could do without.
Any suggestions, please?
