    A little more info please. Is it due to you saving files there or is it mysteriously filling for an unknown reason?

    Have you tried a disk cleaning operation using Windows Disk Cleanup or another tool such as CCleaner?

    Do you have another drive (such as a D: drive) that you could move some files to?

MultiMonitor Wallpapers Filling
I recently upgraded to W8 and so far I'm absolutely loving it though I have noticed that the new Span feature for wallpapers uses Fill as a default for wallpapers which do not fit the aspect ratio of your monitors. Is it possible to modify Span to use Stretch instead? Thanks
