    I've lost 10gb


    With the installation i've devided the HD to several partitions. The C disk has 43Gb. Today I've received a message that the C drive has only 1.5 Gb free. I've checked everything, but I could count less then 30 Gb used. I've checked to show all files, including system files and folders. Even Nero shows more then 10 Gb free. I've run disk check, but the drive is healthy and no error was found. Please, help!

    Run Disk Clean-up and see what happens. (Right-click on drive - Properties).

    What's in your Recycle Bin? Anything?

    Recycle bin, as seen on the first attachment, contains about 230M, the same value shows the clean-up. Altogether I can gain after cleaning is less the 0.5gb
