Solved HDD free space getting smaller instead of bigger

March 10, 2016 at 01:39:45
Specs: Windows 10, 8 gb
I have a 500GB internal hdd (windows 10 ) and in the past few days I noticed that when I delete or move data from in, the free space becomes LOWER instead of bigger. A few days ago I had 170kg free and today I find that the free space is LESS that 130gb - 40 GB gone. Even things that I move to external HDD although they move ok the free space on the internal hdd does not get bigger only smalller. At this rate the HDD will be full - although with what I dont know!

Any ideas anyone?

Hi again korat2000, run your two Wise cleaners & while you are doing that, I will document Browser, Java & your System Restore settings.

Best I have look at these logs before we check your other settings I mentioned, to see what is going on.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.

If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt)
The logs are large, upload them using Zippy ( No account/registration needed ) or upload to a site of your choosing. Give us the links please.

✔ Best Answer
Thanks but I think i have managed to sort it all out. I had a program called "rollback" which allowed to makes restore points and then "rollback" to any point later. I uninstalled the program and I see an addition 100GB on the hard drive. So it must have been that program that caused the problem somehow.
