harddisk space disapears

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by kwijlebabulus, Aug 18, 2004.

  1. hello

    Since I reinstalled win xp prof, i loose harddisk space.
    E.g.: when I count all the files, even the hidden ones, it says for
    example 1.3gig. When i ask the properties of that disk it shows 2.1 gig
    in use.

    How is that possible?

    Is it becaus all the other harddisks are fat32 and the one with
    winxpprof on is ntfs??

    Or is it just something else?

    Please help

    greets kwijlebabulus

    Have you checked the option to show hidden protected system files too?

    Have you tried running scan disk and also defrag?
