For the 10.2gb C you have there before adding anything on it you should be seeing some 9.49949026107788gb according to one hard drive calculator seen at The Tomorrow Times: The Hard Drive Capacity Calculator
To convert decimal units of measurement as drives are labeled into binary units of measurement to see where the drive space goes you can thank Airbot for the best multiplier of 0.9313226
multiplied by each gigabyte of hard drive space.
Besides having the paging file created on D one other factor not mentioned is what? system restore points
I am not sure if most people understand what i am saying yet. On that box that Night Hawk shows for drive C property, mine would say the used space is 7.27 GB and free space is 2.95 GB and total capacity of 10.2 GB. But if i manually highlight all the files and folders on drive C and right click and select property, it would say that there are like 65k files and a few hundred folders and they use 9.81 GB total.
Does anyone see that this does not jive? the used space stated in the drive c property box should equal to the total space that all my files and folders use unless like Logicearth said before that some files are being counted more than once somehow.
I probably will make a screen capture to clarify....
i did have restore point and hibernation disable. And I am not talking about converting between binary and decimal definition of GB.... The number mentioned in my posts are all binary GB.
