I have a 7 gig hard drive. I have only 3 gigs of files but for some reason it shows that I only have 755 mb left. What has happened to the other 4 gigs?

I have, in fact, done a disk cleanup or even better than that I manually visited each and every folder, added up the total of all files and folders, and after making sure that the recycler and temp (etc.) folders were emptied I still only had 2.7 gigs worth of files on this drive but it still says I have only 765 mb left when I should have about 4.3 gigs left. Could this be due to bad sectors?

not likely if it had that many bad sectors I don't think it would bootup.
what operating system are you using Win98 or XP
I think you should run Scandisk
