Missing Memory

  kricky 22:02 23 Aug 07

Today i noticed that my hard drive was missing/using 20GB's of space.
When I set my folder options to show all files and stuff and select all files in my C: drive it says 49.5 GB's used, BUT If I Right click my C: drive from My Computer it says 68.7GB's used.
I've ran defrag and disk check and stuff to make sure, but still 20GB's missing/used.

Any Ideas would be appreciated :) Thanks

At a guess this has been used by system restore and will increase over time until it reaches 15% of the disk capacity. You can get this space back by turning off system restore, but do so at your own risk!!!!

Thanks for the quick response, I really appreciate it :)
System restore appears to be the culprit. After turning it off and deleting old restore points with Disk cleanup I am now down to a 3.3Gb difference, Which i think will be acceptable.

Thanks once again ;)
