I did a system restore on my computer due to a driver misbehaving that was not allowing me to boot at the normal speed. After the restore, I attempted to delete some files that I had previously deleted because I needed to make some space on that drive. Before the deletion I had 24.6 gigabytes of free space on a drive that contained 57 gigs of info. Now when I go to my computer and click on the C: icon in order to assess the statistics, I notice that the amount of free space has changed to 53.3 gigabytes of info. However, all the programs and some of the data I had originally are all in place. Can someone show me or give me a hint as to what happened and how to restore this disk to the original amount of free space. Here are my specs: Soyo Mobo PX400Ultra Zenith Data systems CRT monitor 560 Watts Thermaltake Power supply GEforce MX400 video card Audigy 2 sound card Primary IDE is c: 57 gigabytes HDD (the one that shows the difference in free space) Secondary IDE Lite-On DVD RW drive Terciary IDE: RAID 0 array containing 2 60 Gigs HDDs configured as G: Thermaltake wireless keyboard and mouse USB devices and LAN have been disabled in the BIOS I did run Spybot and corrected a few problems. Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide. kshroben.
