Recently in the midst of other problems I started getting low disk space messages. I checked my C drive, and sure enough 67GB/70 are used! My music takes up maybe 25GB and everything else I do is probably less than 1GB. Besides, I hadnt just used 20GB on anything when the messages started popping up. I cant load AOL, for lack of space. I deselected AOL on MSConfig, but it starts and crashes everytime I start the comp. It always says AOL doesnt have enough space to load.
So, I was rooting around trying to find out what is using all my space. In my System folder there is my C:, D:, Owners Docs, & Shared Docs. My question, are the Docs folders taking up additional space or is that space already accounted for in the C drive? If the Owners Doc folder is 10 GB and C drive 60, is that 10 included in the 60, or is the total 70?
What could be using all those GB? Ohhhhhh, while typing this post, I noticed a Backup file with 5,195,658 KB. Thats a lot irght? :-) It was just created a couple of months ago and I think my comp was in the shop then. Can I just delete this? Should I? If its not the culprit, how do I find out what is? This isnt some sort of spy/virus thingy is it?
Thanks in advance.
