That convinced me that there was some trojan or virus messing around with my drive information(system volume information) I did a scan with Malware, AVG, Kaspersky and Spybot and even though I found a few nasties getting rid of them didn't help. I'm at a loss of how to fix this, I didn't copy or install anything on C: and neither did I put a page file on it.And I know that having low space on your system drive can cause slowdowns and crashes. So can anyone help me out?
Do a disk cleanup.... Disk Cleanup - Open and Use
The tutorial actually has 2 parts :
From step #1 to #5, it does its nornmal cleanup. It will give you back some disk space.
From step #6 to the end, it will removed all your restore points except the most current one. That will give you back tons of disk space.
Warning : One problem. You won't have anymore " past " restore points to fall back to if you have any problem with the computer.
Therefore, you must make sure your computer is running fine before you do that step #6.
