Why have I got no space left on my hard drive

Specs: Windows Vista

Hi, I got a message saying I only have 12 MB
left on my 300GB hard drive today. So I had a
look and I can't figure out where all the
memory has gone, I searched through my
computer and I've got no music, no movies, no
cached files. All I have is a few programs
totalling 3GB, so where the hell is all the rest
of it? After a bit more poking round I right
clicked on the Users folder, clicked properties
and lo and behold it says I have over 3000
folders totalling 221GB! When I double click
the Users folder to open it up, there are 5
Folders, all are small except one which is
211GB and is my user profile. I look at the
properties and it says over 3000 folders but
when I open it there are only 14 and none are
over 1 GB each.

So please can anyone tell me what is using
my memory?

Any help may possibly prevent someone getting injured by a flying computer

Regular use of ccleaner either daily or twice weekly will not let these kind of files to accumulate on your computer
