well for instance, TweakNow regcleaner includes functionality that will provide details on how your hard drive is used. There are other applications that might do similar thing, e.g. CCleaner might, or some of the hard drive defragmentation applications might do the same as well. It is like using a different measuring device for telling you how much space your hard drive is using.
I would like to go over my work in evaluatng the total loads on the hard disk.
First,the Tweak - now confirmed the hard disk usage as 7.2gigabytes.I proceeded as follows:
I clicked on 'computer' and selected 'properties.The disk use indicated as 7.2gigabytes.
I had already set the folder options to show hidden files and folders.
Next I noted the load of two folders on this page.I next clicked 'open' on the disc and
noted the loads on the six folders on this page.At this point the only load was the
operating system which I obtained from the operating system restore cd which came with
the computer.The discrepancy remained.
Please advise if this procedure provided all the info I needed to evaluate the load
on the disk.Thank You,John Whiley
