    Well, the error check didn't solve it. I'll try what you said and fill the hard disk up(not with p0rn of course, that'll take forever!).

    Serious? Porn's the easiest thing to download. IF you can't go with normal porn, go with hentai or something. Only problem is download time...

    Well, most p0rn I see is hosted by megaupload, so there's the download amount restriction. Besides, I have tons of burned animes from long time ago. I'll just copy them to my c:. It shouldn't take long since I have the full naruto season 1.

    Edit:

    Well just got the results back, and it turns I really do only have about 20 gig of disk space. Which brings me back to my original problem of where is the missing 30 gig or so space.

    Do you have "Norton" instaled? specialy protecting you Recycle bin or similar?
    You must empty the protected files ; or turn off this protection.

    There are still some possible "windows" space that is
    Recycle bin
    Page file ( Pagefile.sys )
    Virtual memory
    Hibernate ( hiberfil.sys )
    MBR

    Check if any of thoses files is outrageous big.

    Other thing I can come up with, is..

    Its an IBM computer?
    DISABLE the IBM/Lenovo Rescue and Recovery Backups. Go to the ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery utility, click on "Set Schedule and Preferences" and uncheck the "Schedule Your Backups" box.

    After Ok'ing that, on the main R&R menu click on "Advanced" and select "Delete Backups". You should see a list of backup files that it has made in the hidden RRbackups directory. Check the files you want to delete and click the "Delete" button.


    If both files are ok, hibernate and pagefile, and the backup utility of your computer is turned off already.. all I can say is.

    Format~

    Well, I don't have Norton, I have NOD32,so maybe there's no problem there.

    For those other things, I only know how to look in the recycle bin. No idea how to access
    Page file
    Virtual memory
    Hibernate
    MBR

    I do have an IBM computer, and I was about to do delete my backups when I saw that theres no name in them(don't know what I'm deleting). And it doesn't say what size they are, if they're just b, kb, or mb.
    There is however one file that has the size of 19,890,695

    And there is your missing space..
    Tell the name.. but you should safely delete.. Unless its pagefile.sys =p

    It's named "scheduled". In fact every backup there has the same name.Is that supposed to be correct?
    Here's a link:

    So, since all of them are named the same, is it safe to delete them all?

    Thats right, you may delete that file.

    The "Scheduled" its named because it was a "schedule" backup

    Thx. Guess I'll delete all of them since they're all named "schedule". That should free up to 30 gig. Whew! That's alot of space for backups.

    How do you find the size of pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys? I read that it can be seen in C: and that it is hidden. But when I looked at C: showing hidden files, I still can't see them. I tried "Search" on them, but they didn't show up either. I'm asking this because even though I deleted the backups, I still have about 5gb of space missing, and I figured it must be in those two. Especially hiberfil.sys since I've been hibernating my laptop everytime I have to move while doing something.
