Hi all.This is my first post to a PC forum, so please forgive my ignorance if I say too many stupid things!I have a Thinkpad with a 60GB hard drive (tiny I know, but thats what you get for going with solid state!).
Assuming you have not already, tried this:Open any folderclick tools > folder optionsfind "show hidden folders and files" - or something closeand "show hidden operating system files" - or something closeTry that 😀
Thanks for the quick response.
Hide protected operating system files – that's the one i meant – you can press alt with a folder open to show the menusTry that setting, then run tree-viewIf you didn't notice, which you probably did, at the bottom of tree-view there is a "freespace" counter.Mine is correct.Once you show protected operating system files, you should have a lot more stuff that you can actually see in your hard drive.
Ok, so I unticked the 'Hide Protected Operating Systems' box, re-ran TreeSize and still getting the same numbers – the Freespace counter at the bottom reads '6.04GB or 59.6GB'.Still full to bursting 🙁
Well, something isnt beign picked up by treesize, you said you have 22 gigs of programsand vista is at least 13 gigsthats 35 gigsyou have a pagefile of at least a few gigsare you running treefile as an admin? (right click > run as administrator)
Sorry, typo on the Programs – should have read '2GB'Vista is coming up at a touch under 14GBYep, running as an Adminstrator.Also running Norton, found almost 8GB in a Protected Recycle Bin, just dusty old restore points and deleted files!
It should all come out to the right number, even if treesize isnt seing something, that something should still be there. but im glad you got that recycle bin figured out
