    Hi guys,
    At a loss here, space on my system drive is disappearing.

    I've added up the sizes of the various folders on the C drive - Just below 20gig - Yet "My PC" is reporting that that out of 28.6gig there is only 1.17gig free.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Thanks for reading my post :)

    Found the answer to this problem, it was system restore settings which I reduced and now have my free space back :)

    WinDirStat is a disk space analyser that shows where disk space is being taken up. Read about it here...
