Updated to Windows 8, My HD is still using 300GB - but there is no applications.

Hey there guys, I installed windows 8 on top of windows 7 in my main system. All my apps and games are gone but the HD space is 300gb? wondering... What is going on?

Does W8 make a secret partition to restore old apps or what? Why is my system using 300gb with no apps nor files on the disk?

    If you did an upgrade there is a folder on your hard drive called windows.old it will contain all the data from your windows 7 install. You will need to reinstall all your programs but you can retrieve data from that folder. If you don't need it you can delete it and free up that space.
