|You say that your "Drive size is increasing". Is the size of the drive/partition changing in 'Computer' or is the used space increasing (less unused space)? The difference is significant. If the space being used by Windows 7 is increasing but you still have a lot of unused space on the drive, this is normal. If you installed Windows 7 on a tiny partition 'just large enough' and did not allow enough room for Windows to expand, then you may need to expand the partition so that Windows can 'breathe'. While there are some things you can do to reduce this normal expansion, it is not advisable generally unless it continues unabated, expands faster, or can be traced to an infection. Windows 7 will adjust the amount of virtual memory that it needs, create system restore points to protect itself and allow repairs, add updates for stability and security, and other things necessary, and these are normal and best allowed room to spread. If you have a reasonable large hard drive and partition allocated to Windows 7, just check for infections by updating your antivirus program and running it and doing the same with Malwarebytes occasionally, and then not worrying about a normal process. If your hard drive is small, consider replacing it. If your partition is small, consider expanding it. I feel that Windows 7 should be on a partition of 80GB or larger if just your operating system and 100GB to 120GB for your operating system and your primary programs. I do not generally recommend less.|
Please explain your exact disk and partition set up and the amount of Free Space that Windows reports for each partition for more detailed advice.
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
