UPDATE: My problem has been solved... I have a 100GB HDD in my new laptop. I only have 86GB useable, partly because of a recovery partition that i'm not worried about. Of the 86 usable GB somehow there is 62GB used up, and 24GB free. My problem is that i can't figure out what the hell is filling up my HDD this much. Its a brand new laptop, i havent had time to accumulate that much shit on here... and i have a NAS externally for storage, so i don't store anything on the local HDD. I made a quick and dirty little list in excel of the sizes of the folders in my C: That only accounts for about 20GB out of the 62 Used GB. What the hell is using the other 40GB?!? Can anyone offer any suggestions and/or way to find out where this other 40GB is going?
