Vista Home Premium - Missing HD Space?

Still can't find any forums as to what happened to the lost drive space. I'll give it a try and post back the result. There are ways to get rid of it and reclaim that space, but never do so unless you have burned the "recovery discs" onto some DVDs first. Anyways, before defragging the hard drive, it tells me I got about 28.1Gb of free space and after two hours of defragging it's now has 26.9Gb. Source

nukemasterDec 23, 2008, 5:40 AM Thanks for signing up just to post that .When I switched to Vista I did figure that out as well. From a 5.8-inch OLED display, reports of wireless charging and even a 3D scanner for facial recognition, it's all here. Click OK.

The truth is, Windows hasn't really "sucked" since Windows ME, and Vista is a far superior OS than XP, regarding memory management, stability, storage management, security, usability, aesthetics, etc, etc, etc. Maybe? It's Vista Home Premium SP1 and it really is a nice machine and the OS isn't exceptionally disagreeable.

By adding the partition size to the patition starting offset you should be able to calculate the starting positions and ending positions of each partition on the drive.

Hi Brian , thanks for the Vista resource overview , I may have to pinch some for my site! Other files that fall into this category are things like temporary internet files, the index for disk searching, thumbnail cache for thumbnails that show up when you view a folder of check over here Mika, Since you posted your "shadow storage" story here too, I repeat my answer from the other thread: I think you are confusing things. "Restore points" and "Shadow Copies" in Vista

Login to post comments Yes, it is probably Vista Submitted by brian on Thu, 2009-03-26 16:39. a troublesome audio driver, the SP1 install will throw it out and you can just get a new one after the SP1 installation. nukemasterJan 17, 2008, 5:45 AM O&O Defrag is cool.....but for everyday use i just run the built in one...i have O&O from a time when i could not defrag due to I bet the is 40GB of unallocated space.

I just wish they had better shadow copy options in the future, such as only keeping a current shadow copy on your PC and allowing you to transfer the additional copies http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/244901-32-lost-hard-drive-space-vista-defrag thanks for the great explanation on "where'd my disk space go". System Restore Is Hungry! Tried the Auslogic defrag again but it's not working anymore.

Unless I allow open access to the whole computer thus eliminating some safeguards, all I can see is what is in the "Becky" files. this contact form Don't forget to read the last paragraph. This is a discussion on [SOLVED] 40 GB of missing unknown disk space! A LOT of disk space.

Go to the Control Panel's Administrative Tools section and run the Disk Management program. This is because the space is not allocated right away, only when it's needed. control panel/systemleft side select Advanced System Settingsgo to System Protection TabUncheck boxes to the drivesselect ok Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) Collapse - Phenom!!!! have a peek here I ended up here because I was concerned about the 'missing' 107GB on my C drive (750GB (697.5GB actual)).

I deleted loads of my stuff off the drive but the disk usage still remains high - so I looked into it..... http://www.microsoft.com/downl.....laylang=en That will correct any missing prerequisites etc. You can erase temporary files, system restore and shadow copies.

PS. "Tracking cookies" are not spyware and cannot take up more than a few KB of disk space. Thanks again John for pointing me in the right direction.It was in fact the IBM Rescue and Recovery Backups that were taking up all that space. You can also try using MoveOnBoot to forcible oust the folder from your hard drive.Hope this helps,John Flag Permalink This was helpful (1) Collapse - Re: It's an IBM thing...
