Specs: Windows Vista
I use a Acer Aspire 5920g laptop which works on windows vista home premium. Its a 120 gb. As instructed by customer service I have set my laptop for factory default once using the way instructed to me as my windows media centre had stopped working . It was working fine but now I seem to the same problem along with few others.
My disk space is almost full. My C:\\ drive is of 51.1gb capacity. In which I have personal data which include a few software of about 10 gb in total. I do not know how the other 40gb if full. As far my operating system is concerned it should take 20gb max. I do not understand where my other 20 gb is used. I tried finding it but was unsuccessful. I have tried using system file checker or sfc/scannow in command prompt logging in as administrator but the scan stops at 76%. I have tried all possible ways but still its the same.
My D:\\ drive is of 47.6gb. I have utilised 25 gb max of it. I do not know why still it says 41 gb utilised.
I want to know why is it so and how can i get my disk space back and why my system file checker is not able to complete the scan and what can i do to fix it.
What I think is when I had done system restore to factory default using alt+F10 button and selecting the factory default option, somehow the files got copied twice. Is it possible? Do you think it might be the case? I use a licensed software called Advance system care. In this you have the option of finding any cloned files. When i used it I did found many of my files appear to be cloned. I do not know if its normal. Few of files appear to be cloned once and few others like 4 times. I do not understand why is this case. Please help me free all my space and my file checker running.
Your help at the earliest will be much appreciated.

Did you empty the cache in your Internet Explorer and clean up the Download you have? 40 GB is tinny by the way. It might be time to upgrade.
