I was trying to keep a close eye on the amount of free space on my hard drive, very regularly erasing my cookies/temp. internet files/history, but I'd still notice unexplained loss or gain of several MB. Then today, I was updating Windows Media Player when I got the "low disk space" message. I check later and the free space has jumped to over 1GB. Can anyone explain this to me?
I usually don't keep things in the Recycle Bin; I delete them, then empty the Bin. And the only time I've seen a scandisk run is when the computer resets after a system error, and that hasn't happened recently.
I've been clearing the cookies, temporary internet files, and history in my IE and Firefox whenever I finish browsing, but the free space would still be less than when I started browsing. Or it would be at one amount, then later it would be at a different amount even without browsing. I mentioned the sudden jump in free space after getting the "low disk space" message. I'd been keeping an eye on the amount of free space because it was under 1 GB, and I knew the drive needs to be about 15% free (~1.4GB) in case I want to defrag
As for my memory situation? The C drive has a total size of 9.43 GB, its file system is NTFS, and there's currently about 1.3 GB free. If you mean RAM, I don't know where to check that.
For the moment no, although I'm working on getting them to supply me with that. I'm guessing by the way you are asking as well as common sense that not having the logs would make it impossible to receive better stats.
