What's filling up my hard drive?

Post by Mera on Sat 19 Jan 2013, 17:49

My hard drive is auto filling itself quickly and I've no idea what it is. I've ran a scan in Kapersky and detected no virus or anything. I've tried a program called windirstat and found out that a file was taking up 7GIGS and I deleted it. After that, hard drive's still auto filling itself. How can I detect what's causing this?

Hello,

Try Treesize from www.games4theworld.org to see what's taking up most space on which drive(s).
If you don't know what file it is, take a screenshot of the Treesize interface, please.

Yeah that's its name. I've tried it and figured that a 7GIG folder is taking up space and I deleted it. But the auto filling problem is not solved. It's just being auto filled without doing anything.

It was my screenshot taker program SNAGIT which included old undeleted photos and videos.

Hello,

Hmmm... did you check your SNAGIT settings? See if you can find an option that leads to that folder.
I personal don't use SNAGIT, so I can't tell.

I'm sure Snagit hasn't got anything to do with this. Cause I'm deleting photos completely each time I use them. The reason that Snagit had a 7GIG folder was because it saved a backup of every video and pic captured. So I'm sure it has got nothing to do with SNAGIT.

Hello Mera,

Please contact me via the Forum's Chatbox when you see me online on the Forum.
I'll take a look via TeamViewer, if you don't mind.
