in my comp it says my HD had 12 gigs used.
(also in the HD properties)
if i select all the files after opening my HD it only shows 3 gig used.
(ive also check by selecting all the main folders and nothing uses over 1gig
most use 300 megs or so there are a total of 6 or 7 main folders on the HD)
all folders are set to see hidden files & folders.
how do i track down what is using the space?
(only software that might try and backup things is norton- the trash is
set to standard in the norton options)
It depends on what file system you are using on your HDD's partition. You could be wasting space if you are not using NTFS. If you are using FAT32 in a 32k cluster, then you could be wasting space. (I'm assuming that your OS is W2k) You may have to get a program called, <b>"Partition Magic"</b> to change your file system and reclaim wasted space.
