Hello BB.





I'm not sure this is the answer but when images are created they are compressed to a smaller footprint to save storage space.

That is a strange one, how long a time between the install and the creation of the image?
Have you run malware scans on everything?

Does what Disk Manager says you have as far as freespace match what you see when you look at the Properties of your drive in My Computer?

You could use a utility like Windirstat to analyze your disk usage and determine which files are using what space.

BB,

Run Disk Cleanup.
WIN key | type Disk Cleanup |Enter key
Select to delete all restore points except for the very last one.


Download, install, run CCleaner.


Now how much free space on the drive?
