I am seeing 9G usage on C:/, and I checked Windows Explorer for a
breakdown; but the tally comes no where near 9G. Is there another way
to determine disk usage?

Hi,

You are probably not set to see hidden and system files. Things like
pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys, both of which should reside on the root, can
take considerable space.

SequoiaView is an excellent free (and clean) utility helpful in tracking
down mysterious missing drive space.

It provides a one window graphical representation of which files are taking
up how much space where on a drive, often quickly and easily tracking down
files that Windows is reluctant to reveal.

(It's kinda fun too) :-)

Hi!
Downloaded and installed sequoiaview, Well! we must have a different
definition of "fun" WEIRD I would call it.
Sorry it's only my opinion of course.

The best tool I know of is Treesize. You can get it at
http://www.jam-software.com/treesize/
It is a powerful and flexible harddisk space manager for Windows
98/ME/NT/2000/XP. It shows you the size, allocated and wasted space,
the number of files, 3D bar and pie charts, the last access date, the
file owner, the NTFS compression rate and much more information for
several folders or drives you choose. Try it out. Cheers
