ok so i ran disk defrag on my 160gb/5400 hdd which had about 26gb left, after the defrag instead of freeing up space i now only have 7gb.
i have never had this problem before, on any OS and cant really find much on this.
thanks guys i know you will come through!
Maybe your free space was being reported incorrectly before the defrag and the defrag fixed it. That's my guess but it's just a guess. I have seen defrag adjust free space before. Yours was a big adjustment, LOL
i thought something like that might have happened, i checked in ubuntu and everest, both report the same.
and what is the strangest thing, is the longer i am on the computer (ex. using firefox, etc) the space gets smaller and smaller.
is this unique to vista? im thinking it didnt finish defrag and still is running in the background?
i just checked all my files in C drive at it should add up to 98, not 134
thats a rather large difference...is it all being held in temp?
ok i ran it again..now i have 17.5gb free
what is going on
