New 500GB Hard Disk Full

February 10, 2011 at 10:24:30
Specs: Windows XP
I bought my laptop less than a year ago and my hard disk is filled up. I have tried disk cleanup, defrag and scandisk/chkdisk. I only freed up 1G, still have 400G+ missing. Pls HELP. I read an old post on this website that it might be a Dell RA program. I have a Dell and use Windows Vista. Has anyone had this experience and if so what did you do to get your 400+Gigs back.

Thanks Much,

If it's almost a year old, it's not new. You need to give us more info to go on. How many partitions are there? Go to My Computer, right click on C:, then click Properties, Post what's listed for Used space, Free space, Capacity. If there are other paritions, do the same for them. A 500GB HDD will have approx 466GB. If the total isn't that much, check Disk Management to see if there's any unallocated space.
