C drive is 'creeping up'

Likes # 0

Hi,

I have a single SSD 128 gb drive partitioned 109gb on C and 10 gb on D (recovery) on a Windows Medion desktop running Vista..

Windows,program files etc are on C. All downloads are directed to an external drive.

Each time I boot up the used space on c increases slightly. Cannot remember this happening on the original HDD and wonder if something is amiss.

Any advice welcome.

Thank you gentlemen for all your advice.

Removed all but the last System restore point which also reduced the shadow copy service, and it clawed back 21gb at a stroke. I also bookmarked the links for future reference.

Thank you all ...... very much appreciated.
