I have a 160GB SSD as windows/application. it came to my attention that i currently have only 30 GB left free space, which surprised me. I didnt install much on the drive. So I started to investigate it;
opened a dosbox and did: dir * /s; the result:
Total Files Listed:142356 File(s) 30,204,940,918 bytes 61206 Dir(s) 32,397,701,120 bytes free
30GB with files and 32GB free = 62GB on a 160GB drive, I miss almost 100GB of space!
I tried with Treesize pro, showed same result. 100GB seems to be missing.
Checked the firware (Intel SSD toolbox, word 23-26); 2CV102G9
which seems ok.
What can i do to reclaim the 100Gb ?
thanks in advance,
I got 10GB extra back by deleting windows 7 restore points. ( http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/how-to-delete-system-restore-points-windows-7/ http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/how-to-delete-system-restore-points-windows-7/ )
so the score is now:
Total Files Listed:142506 File(s) 30,200,760,844 bytes 61164 Dir(s) 40,100,790,272 bytes free
30+40 = 70Gb on a 160 GB drive, 90GB is unaccounted for.
anyone a suggestion?
thanks in advance
Use this freeware program to see where your space has gone:
Then let us know what it was!
found it! ran treesize pro as admin, (does NOT work when you run a dosbox as admin and do dir * /s)
It has nothing to do with my SSD. its thanks to windows 7
2.1 Million files in one directory! thanks Media Player!
ill try to find out what causes it. and find out how to delete them, for the sake of completion. i'll post the solution here.
