any ideas why my C drive is almost full? it's 80 gb. i know when i last
checked about 2 months ago it was less than a third full.
i know this is a wide open question. just wondering if anyone else has had
this weird problem lately.
i've scanned with NAV, scanned for unusually large files, run a few disk
cleaners. i don't know where else to look for problems.
thanks,
mcnewxp

These tools might help you:
DriveUse:
http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/freeware/ind ex.html
Bullet Proof Folder sizes: http://www.foldersizes.com/
By the way - it would be useful if you told us what operating system you
run.

Download TreeSize Free from jam-software and run that, opening it on your C
drive. (Download from http://www.jam-software.com/freeware/index.shtml). It
will give you a very intuitive display showing where all your space has
gone. Once you know where the space has gone then you can start to think
about what to do with it.

HTH.
