did you reformat the hard drive when you did your install? there shouldn't be a folder like that if the entire hard drive was formatted

Best solution

It sounds like you didn't re-format completely. If you haven't loaded too much on it already, I'd re-install again (making sure to re-format completely).

Yes I deleted all partitions and formatted. Why does it say I have used 48 gb ?

Try running this program : It'll give you a list of folders on the hard drive and the amount of space they take up.

do a windows search for *.* and sort by size.

there is also another program called folder size.
