Hi guys,

I have a slight problem with my hard drive. It says that I have 685GB free out of 916GB, which means that I'm supposed to have used up 231GB.

But when I check the size of everything in the drive, it shows I've only used 137GB. I even used Treesize to check and it shows that all the files in the drive add up to just 137GB, not 231 GB. Where has the other 100GB gone to?

Please help, thanks. I've even cleared out all the restore points already, so I don't know what the problem is.

You might try reducing the size of the reserved space for both System Restore and the Recycle Bin. I have mine set to about 5%.
