I know this isn't about Kazaa but I have this problem and don't know where to post it.
decided to DL Visual Studios.NET off of BitTorrent the other day. It's a relatively large file, 2.86 gigs I think. Before I downloaded I had about 12 (or 14 one of them) gigs free on my drive. It downloaded blah blah I know downloading off p2p fragments your drive but I use diskkeeper often so it wasn't a worry. When it downloaded I extracted the 4 gig (gag) ISO from the rar. and tried to open it with win ISO. and to my luck it was corrupted. I didn't absolutely need the files anyway so I just deleted it.
To my surprise when I checked my harddrive it was down to 500megs. 12 gigs --> 500 megs is quite bothersome to me . So my question is where did all the space get eaten up? I also analyzed my drive and there are huge fragments. I emptied my Norton Protected Bin (I'm running Systemworks 2003) and that freed it up to 1.91 gigs. Anybody know what happened? I'd like my space back =\.
I checked my folders I have a 40 gig drive. I have 7.35gigs in The Documents and Settings, 1.74gigs in Windows, 3gig in my UT,2003 and 4 between CS and my Program Files. That's about 16 gigs, half of my drive or so plus all other files which this adds up the what i originally had. The only wierd thing I see is when I click on System Volume Information I get
C:\System Volume Information is not accessible.
Access is denied.
I don't know what else to add and this all makes some sense. I also emptied my Temp Files in Doucments and Settings and the Temp files in Windows folder and my Prefetch files. Running XP Pro.
