Diskspace trouble

Hello!

Im sorry if i post this in an wrong section but what ever.

Ive recently seen that my diskspace has gone down like 1gb per day without me doing anything. I seems its strange since an while i had like 650gb of space and now its only 570gb.

What could cause this? Ive not downloaded any software or music what ever. It just keep filling it up

You could get a program called WinDirStat to show you where your space is being allocated.
