I just have a 40gb hard drive and need all the space I can retain. Normally I have about 63% free space, which is fine. When I check it now it says
capacity - 25.60gb
free space - 9.08gb
35% free space.
Normally, it is around 37 - capacity, and 63% free space. I don't know what happened! I did try to load Ubuntu on it last evening, I believe it said it would partition my HD ( Ubuntu 7.04 ) but it "hung up" and I closed it down. I know "absolutely nothing" in this area, so I need help.
I did a system restore back a few days, and the capacity remains, which leads me to believe it was something else. I haven't downloaded any new programs lately more than minor kb's.
anyhow, how do I check what's on my hard drive ( taking up valuable space ) so I can get it back to normal?
Thanks so much - Keith
