We have two computers running Win7 - 64 bit; one a desktop, the other a laptop. The desktop has two physical hard drives; one is designated (C) for Windows and Programs and (D) for data. I have the single laptop drive separated into two partitions - (C) and (D) with same functions as the desktop. They are both experiencing a similar problem. The (C) drive on both will begin to show a greatly diminished amount of free space on the drive. I've explored every folder, including hidden and protected, and can find nothing out of the ordinary. My cure is to run a restore from a recent backup of the drive. When the operation has completed, the (C) drive will show an increase of 40-60 GB of free space. Whatever the problem is, the backup operation is not seeing it. Anyone out there with ideas?? Thanks!!
