Hi everyone,

I recently installed a fresh copy of windows 7, and also service pack 1.

I have noticed that in my installation drive, i am loosing space continously...like it said 4 gb free yesterday and now its less than 1 gb left. Any idea how i detect whats eating up storage space.

Ok i figured (some of) the lost space to be used by updates being downloaded in the background. Just one issue remaining, the storage space is not consistent as you can see in the pic below

You appear to have a Lenovo ThinkPad W500 with a 160 GB hard drive.

If you did a reinstall of Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit in it, why did you divide the hard drive into 4 small partitions instead of leaving it in a single C partition?

Well i bought a used one, and the partitions were alrready there so i started using without doing a fresh install. After a while i had a bunch of data with no backup so i just reinstalled without changing the partitions
