depends on what you are doing when you have it on ,a lot of temp files build up and are deleted on a reboot

well i don't be doing much just just browsing the net.i no about temp files but they cant be that big that after a restart it clears up that much space should it?

i had a HDD in my pc which went dead before i had it replaced with the current one and that didn't use to do this.u get where im coming from? its strange :S
