    C drive is full, don't know why


    I just tried installing some game, and it said there isnt enough space on C drive, it canceled the installation but it clogged my C drive, and I cant find it , I have from 70 GB to 3 GB of free space on C, and I cant even find the thing to delete it. When I go right click>properties on every file, the file ,which is in C/users it says 77gb but when I open it and right click all the files it says 12 GB, where is the rest 65 ???

  2. Windows 7 Snipping Tool / (Screen Shots-Capture)

    1. In the Control Panel > Folder Options > View Tab first check ( tick ) the Show hidden files, folders and Drives and then Apply.
    2. Now navigate to C:\ Program Data \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Start Menu \ Program.
    3. Inside this Program folder , you will find the 'Accessories' folder.
    4. Drag and drop the Accessories Folder on your Start Menu or All programs.
    Did this work ?

    If all works again i suggest to go back to Step 1 and re-select Don`t show hidden files. folders and Drives then Apply. so you don`t accidentally delete some of these.
