    Dear all,

    Here is an interesting problem, I have lenovo Z61 laptop with 100GB disk. I have approx. 90GB working space. When i check the properties of C: drive, its shows that only 6 GB is free. I browse C: drive, mark all folders & files (show hidden files/folders option is on) and look the properties, it shows that total 32GB is data and system files.

    Its amazing that where is remaining space (around 50GB). I have also disabled that shadow copy/recovery option, only 9 GB space is recovered.

    Seeking for help.

    Thanks,

    Muhammad Azam

    Hmmm. Shadow Copy would've been my first guess. Maybe it's some other cache that is new to Vista? Or maybe it's just a bug in the gauge. :)
