Try deleting all the old windows restore points, (turn off then on and delete old) this should give you some space back. Remember that windows also uses some for the swap file.I have an old 60 GB HD in a Dell Ispiron E1505. It was getting full, and only had 1.7 GB free, so I moved all of the music, video, and picture files onto my wife's new Lenovo laptop(which rocks, and was recommended by another Yahoo! Answer person).
In all I moved 14 GB of data, so I should have almost 16 GB of data of free space. But when I right click the hard drive, it reads only 4.6 GB free now. Yes I deleted it all, and all of the temp internet files, and emptied the files from the "Trash" bin.
When I right click and do properties on the C drive it does say 60 GB, and 4.6 GB free. But there's no way that can be the case.
When I run WinDirStat, a hard drive information program for what files take up what room, it read the hard drive(C drive) at 44.9 GB total capacity, Which would make sense when it tells me only 4.7 GB free.
What could be wrong? And does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?
