Hey all. Not entirely sure if this is the right sub-forum to be using, but whatever... Anyway, I just recently got a custom-built computer from the folks at allpczone, and among the couple of problems I'm having with it, one is that I seem to be missing an absurd amount of disk space. Now, this thing has a 1TB of memory (and, for the record, 12 gb ram, running Vista Home Premium 64) , so I'm not really in danger of running out anytime soon. Nonetheless, the fact that I had only put about, say, 20-40 gigs worth of stuff onto it, and yet am down to just under 800 GB of free space (out of a total of 931, or so My Computer tells me), is mildly disconcerting. So I did a cursory amount of research and found the program WinDirStat, which tells me that I'm using 60 gigs. All very well and good, not completely thrilled that apparently 15 gigs are being taken up by pagefil.sys and hiberfil.sys, but as long as those are capped around there and won't keep growing indefinitely I'm fine with it. Still though, where did my other 70 gb get to? Unfortunately I didn't have the presence of mind to check space and write it down when I first turned on the computer, so it may well have come with that much space taken up. However, that doesn't really change the question of with what? Unless WinDirStat doesn't look for drivers or something, I'm a bit lost here. On a side note--I'm just now learning to use Vista, but I have a code to activate 7 that came with the copy I bought. Is 7 good/bug free enough right now that I may as well forget trying to master Vista's quirks and just go right for it? Also, how painless is the installation process/will it mess with any of my various files (which includes a large number of old x86 stuff, I guess)? Edit--WinDirStat actually displays, under "free space," a total memory value next to C: of 855.9 GB, stating that 794 of it is currently free. This would make the figures correct. However that doesn't explain why My Computer lists my total space as 930 GB. I know that 1TB isn't really 1000GB, but while I would have accepted 930, 850-odd seems too low.
