    I just checked on my harddisk, and appearantly, I have only 17 gig out of 146 gig left! :confused: :eek: :eyebrow: That's right, I have absolutely no idea where that went. I have maybe 5 gig of mp3s tops, a couple of hunderd word files, a couple of games, several 20 mb programmes for all kinds of stuff. Anyway, there's no way in the world I could have used 129 gig!

    My question: is there an option in XP that allows you to see what exactly is using your harddisk space (except for the software install/uninstall screen)?

    No, but I'd flush the IE cache and limit it to a fixed amount.
    Also delete the content of the Temp folder, etc.

    Window Washer is handy for stuff like that.

    There are also several tools that display folder sizes, I'll try to dig up some names.
  3. windows explorer?
    my computer?

    Tree Size at www.jam-software.com is another good program that analyses your hard drive and tells you how many bites are in every folder, and in your OS.
  14. It's a slightly modified form of Nocturnal; I'll find you a link if I can.

    That drive in my picture is a 400GB partition...about 60-ish GB of music.

    (And about 75% of it is ripped from CD's)

    I'm guessing the gray area represents porn files, right?
