Windows 7: Missing space in C: how to recover ?


18 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7 x64 pro/ Windows 7 x86 Pro/ XP SP3 x86
 
 

In the treesize report, the Used space is shown as 36.1 gb but adding up the individual folders size gives only about 20gb.

My guess is its the hibernation file which is taking up space that treesize cant read.

Do you use hibernation? Try turning it off. Click Start button, type "cmd" without quotes, then click on the result. At the command prompt, type:

powercfg -h off

Hit Enter. This will disable hibernation and delete the hiberfil.sys.

Then run Treesize again or check in windows explorer.

In windows explorer-> folder options->View tab->hidden files and folders, click on "Show hidden files, folders..." and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". Click on Apply, Ok.

Now run treesize.

Couple of more things you can try:

1) use spacemonger instead of treesize and see what it reports.

2) Run a chkdsk.
