Hi there

Maybe paging ???

anyway download something like TREE SIZE FREE -- good graphical display of disk space usage --run in admin mode to see hidden and system (windows) files. Don't forget also Internet temporary files / history files from browsers, downloaded files etc etc.

Even if you've fixed the problem now this is a good utility to have.

Like I said, I do not think it did. I think windows was not reporting the size correctly from the start and then figured it out.
