Windows 7: Windows 7 disk space decreasing extremely fast

30 Jan 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

Okay its happening again Ill have a screenshot up shortly.I can confirm there are no restore point after I ran CCleaner it got rid of them.Ill run Checkdisk after the windirstat is finished scanning and Ill try out the malwarebytes.

I'm starting to think its my AV since Comodo usually acts strange after a system restore but if it is the issue it never acted this bad

Check storage allocation first

I've noticed that "System Restore" will let you "create System Restore Points", despite having no space allocated to store them!

I've done it.
There were no warnings issued (on my PC).

You have to make sure that you have allocated space, BEFORE making any "System Restore Points".

They were allocated before but ccleaner wiped them.But I found out where the space went theres a folder located in the appdata folder its something with a chrome extension i believe it ate up about 15 gbs so if im right i think they call this a memory leak? the last extension that auto updated was lastpass so that could be it

I will start off simple.
1. Fill in you system specs completely. It will help us help you.
2. Registry cleaners in my opinion should not be use unless one is very
experienced in such things.
3. Make sure you only have one anti virus and firewall active at the same time.
Remove all others completely.
4. Using Ccleaner under Tools will show you your restore points.
5. Check and remove all programs you don't use. You can use Windows 7 Add
and Remove, Ccleaner or Revo.
6. Go to our Tutorials and get Disk Clean Up Extended and do a disk clean up.
This will get you started.
Note: Windows doesn't work well when less than 10% hard drive space is

EDIT:I updated my sys specs.And after Deleting the folder and file within the IndexedDB folder my free space hasn't changed.I'll post an update on whether this problem is resolved since it's to soon to say it's fixed

If Chrome is causing the problem, perhaps you should consider swapping to FF9 or IE9.

I personally don't like those two browsers but thanks for the advice.I believe it's safe to say now that the problem is solved all I had to do was delete the folders within the IndexedDB folder and the file.

(C:\Users\"Your username"\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\IndexedDB)

Thanks for all your help and suggestions.Below is for anyone who has this issue in the future I can't stand when someone fixes an issue but doesn't post the solution.

Tools used: Windirstat (search it on google)-used to identify where all the free space was consumed
More info about deleting the IndexedDB ( ReviverSoft for the link
