    Disk Space Depleted without Justification

    Hi EightForum Mentors,

    Back with a new problem, My local disk C is stating that its full but I can't identify whats occupying the space, can you assist me with this?

    Also I don't know if its appropriate to ask, but my workstation has windows 7 on it, and I wanted to start using final cut but I did not want to buy a mac, I have tried to get moutain lion working but have failed dismally, is there anyone here between eight and seven forums who can assist me with this problem?

    The second question...I have no idea that isn't really where I work with.

    As far as the hard drive space though easy/simple question...

    when was the last time you deleted your recycle bin contents?

    I would also suggest a program called ccleaner by Pinform. It's an excellent tool to help clean up your system.

    Hi, Thanks for your response. Emptying the recycle bin seems to have increased the space used on the disk. ccleaner I'll try right now
