Hi guys.. my harddisk have this really weird problem. When i was checking the amount of space remaining a few days back, it was around 3gb+. But yesterday when i checked again, it went up to 8gb plus and i did not uninstall or delete any stuff. Any idea why this happened? Its occured quite a few times in the past already lol. I guess its a good thing but then im quite worried at the same time

Im using windows vista btw.

thanks!

You downloaded too much porn (that's why you only have 3gb left) and got a virus from the porn (that's why it keeps changing.)

For a second I thought you were talking about your penis.

Sometimes, I masturbate while imagining my girlfriend is ramming her knee up into my precious orbs. It turns me on so much.

Actually, that's not true. I don't have a girlfriend

Then you have a virus from somewhere sides porn. I'd use the virus scanner. Also, if you don't already have it DL Advanced WindowsCare V2 Personal. It's on this site, http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html. Then run that scan twice or even 3 times to make sure you get all the junk. After that, defragment your hard drive. If none of that works, take it in and get a new hard drive.

Did you leave your cpu on for a long time and then shut it down recently. Like a long long time.

eh how long is long? cuz i recently downloaded a game and i had to leave my com on fer around 1 whole day. does that consider long?

One day isn't long, recycle bin could have done it though. Can't think of anything else though.

Other than that just be happy you have extra space I guess.

i could say pagefile expanding but not that much, maybe someone reconfigured or deactivated the recycle bin reserved space, internet temporary files space or system restore

anyway i cant see anything bad coming from extra space....unless you like porn lol

yea i did empty but my bin doesnt contain like 5gb of stuff lol.


You'd be surprised, one time I found a homeless dude in my recycle bin, yes my computers recycle bin, it was like some crazy Tron shit, but yeah sometimes theres a lot more in there than you'd think, but do a virus scan anyway.

Did you change the system restore settings? Maybe some restore points got deleted automatically?

Use CCleaner to clean your comp of unnecessary temp files and such, it will keep your comps Hard disk straight, happens to me all the time. A defrag will only help if you have large volumes of fragmented files, files that need physical repositioning on the hard disk.

Don't get a new one if this continues, Vista will likely **** up long before your Hard Disk does, simple format and OS install fixes that. Vista may be cool at first, but its inevitable you'll start noticing problems (if you're a hardcore comp user)

Yeah, probably some weird vista indexing or temporary files that got cleaned up. You'd be surprised at how much IE's cache takes space on your computer.
