    Please clarify your statement. How do you know you're using 6GB and what it telling you that you're using 13?

    system restore, the recycle bin, and your page file all take space on your hard drive... Turn system restore off, empty your recycle bin, and check the size of your page file and add that to your space to get an accurate reading.
