    I'm trying to clean up my Harddrive, and in my Documents And Setting/Local Users There is 4.3gb of unaccounted stuff... I've done disk cleanups and I've checked the properties of each folders in Local Users and Aviv (me) but it just does not add up to 4.3 gigs...

    Any help?

    What is in your My Documents folder? This is where your documents are stored for each user, I have 57.9 GBS in My Documents, and if I check Documents and Settings, there will be even more because there are 2 users on this PC. So unless you delete all of your files its going to stay that much.

    could be in the temp folder.
    make sure you can view hidden folders.

    Right click on each subfolder and check properties. You can then pinpoint where the files are from the size for the contents of the folder.

    Done that...When I right click on Temp Internet Files, it tells me 4.23 gigs even though the folder is empty, but the location it gives me is the Documents And Settings/Local Users root folder and not Temp Int Files.

    have you tried a 'system optimizer' like CCleaner?
