I have an Acer Aspire 5630 laptop, with Windows Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2).
Here are the rest of the specs:
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T5500 @ 1.66 GHz 1.67 GHz
Memory (RAM): 1.00 GB
System Type: 32-bit Operating System
I've been having problems with my C drive's free disk space. I've been having this issue for quite a while now. It fluctuates frequently, and keeps decreasing in general. For example, it was 2 GB (out of 32.5 GB) free this morning, and now it's 300 MB free). I have only some programs installed. I uninstalled anything that wasn't necessary so I could clear up some space. Also, I don't have any documents/music/pictures stored on my C drive. They're all on the D drive. I don't understand how I could possibly be using 30 GBs.
I've cleared up restore points and checked the settings, which say they're only using 2.8 GB from my hard drive. I don't have the hibernation option enabled. I've also done Disk Cleanup several times, and well as Defragmenter. The most they do is clear up a few 100-150 MBs and such.
I also routinely clean up temporary internet files and the recycle bin. I followed up on most of the advice given on similar posts about decreasing C drive memory (such as clearing out the Prefetch folder, etc) but they had little or no effect.
I'm using Avast now, but previously I had use AVG and McAfee, and neither of them had detected any virus.
I ran the TreeSize thing and I'm posting a link here to my folder-size breakdown.
I'd really appreciate it if anyone could help. I've been struggling to fix this for a while, and can't seem to find a way. If the problem is something I'm not seeing, it would really help to know what I need to do. I'm a proper newbie so I don't know that much about systems/windows/etc but I think I can try.
If any more details are needed, please let me know.
Thanks a lot.
