Windows 7: Hard drive full for no reason

Hard drive full for no reason

I recently factory restored my computer yesterday.

Now today the whole hard drive is full for no reason. Nothing was downloaded on the computer since then.

I did a virus scan and found nothing.

What is going on and how do I fix it?

What is the size of your Hard drive?

Go to you're C:\ drive. See if windows.old or old.windows folder exsists?
If so delete that and it will free up ALOT of space on you're hard drive.

Also click start and type in search> manage
Then click on Computer Management at the top.
You should see Storage in the center pane, double click on it.
Then Double click on Disk Management.
This will enable you to see the state of your drives.

Please post a snapshot of the resulting info.

cheers
