    As you can see in the image above, when I right click and look at properties within My videos the info seems to be completely wrong. The visible videos there account for only about 100Mb. I'm a bit worried, and am running out of space on my computer, so it would be good to get this problem sorted.

    Cheers!

    Are you sure RealPlayer Downloads aren't taking up any space?

    And maybe there are hidden files eating up space, go to:
    Tools (In windows explorer) > Folder Options > View > Under "Hidden Folders" check "Show Hidden Folders". Then check the file size of the hidden folders in that file (If there is any).

    Other then that, I don't know what to tell you, double check that it all adds up to only 100MB.

    :D Glad I could help. Hidden folders can be a pain, so I usually always have it checked to show them.
