Are you using imaging software like Macrium Reflect?
It could be a temp file used when it backed up your system.

If not do you have the page file encrypted?

How old is the file?

Thank you for your response. After a bit of searching I found that a program named idlecrawler had somehow got into my system. I deleted it via the control panel and then deleted the 20Gb's of files it had created. All is back to normal now.

Bad program. Many anti-virus products should detect it.

Please help with disk management - can't delete 14GB free space
Here's my issue. I had three partitions, but I turned one of them into "free space" to be merged into my "C" disk. So in the picture, it would be the 129.84 GB plus the 14.33 GB partitions. The 4.89 GB is for Ubuntu. http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/5992/capturepwv.png However, when I...
