    Hey all.

    I run my system from a 40g internal h/d, with 3 external 250g h/d's.

    Normally, with some of the smaller and more *necesary* programs operating from drive c (internal), my drive usage runs at about 60% used. Somehow however, I'll be typing away, and a message comes up saying I have low drive space. In the space of a few seconds my drive goes from 60%-ish to 100% full!!!

    I search, check ALL folders but NOTHING I can see is new/downloaded/self-created.

    Is this rapid and unfortunately very - daily - regular rise and fall by over 8gig normal? Usually I have to run ALL my bug/spyware/system doctor/windows doctor type software before it goes away, but then sometimes it just goes away by its'self with no input from me at all.

    Please tell me that this is something easily sorted, because when usingn space hungry prog's like p/shop or audition it stops me from saving/changing doc's and simply allows me all in all to do sweet FA until IT clears it's own mind up as to how big it is!

    What to do? Any ideas help???

    In hopeful anticipation...
