hi i was wondering if some one could help me? i have a 160GB maxtor 6y160l0 HDD. i have 2 partions c: 143GB and d: 10GB. in the c: drive properties it says that 130GB of the space is full, but according to all the folders in the c: only add up too 107GB. i have all show all files and folders on, and show system files. i have xp sp2 fully updated and installed on d: (if thats any help) i had a similar problem with a previous xp installation, when i originally formatted the hdd it was missing 30GB, it would be read as a 130GB hdd before and after xp installation. but i have done several fresh installs since then and it has always been read as 160GB since. if anyone has any suggestions i would be grateful for the help. oh and since i installed the os on the smaller d: partion all the xp install folders are still on c: could this be the problem? i also heard some one mentioned something about 0k files on a similar tread could somebody elaborate on this?
