it says im taking 8.2 gbs. yet, that is not true, ive tried numerous, programs to find out how much space is being used,. according to it, only.. 4gbs is being used :|

windows being dumb, when I was deleting a file (4.1gb size O.o ) it stalled, proceeded by crashing while deleetting *sigh* and now, it keeps saying that im using 8.2gbs (liar!) :/ the 4gb file is gone.. but windows says, the space is taken, by files which doesnt exist.. *sigh*

this being 98se..

anyone know how to tell windows to wake up and realize theirs more space..

Grr!

Empty your recycle bin. Until you do, the system still "sees" the space as being "used"

There's this( Disk Space Inspector 2.3.7)I've used it alot.
you get it for 30 days.
http://www.tucows.com/preview/333035.html

This: ShowSize 3.2.5 (gives detailed reports on the folder sizes and wasted space) you get it for 30 days .

http://www.tucows.com/preview/209306.html

This one you get for 21 days ? SizeExplorer Lite 3.2.7
http://www.sizeexplorer.com/sel.htm

ShowSize 4.1.9 (30 days trial)
http://showsize.com/showsize4.shtml

I have the first one and like it use it all the time.(Disk Space Inspector )

But I like what I saw on the last one ,and just downloaded it .lol
ShowSize..So I'am going to mess around with it
Hey if ya don't like it ...un-install it.

I use RegVac to get rid of the leftover Reg files (I have tried every Reg cleaner 5x over ,and always go back to it ) just a tip ..I have run them all
threw the cleaners .
RegVac gets more ,more safely ,than any other I have used in the last 10 years ,and they constantly make it better ...I use JV16 ...just to cross check it,to see whats it did not delete ...if you no what(JV16) is.

Open explorer up ,go to ,,tools ,folder options, view,and scroll down and
check ,show files and hidden folders,and un-check (hide protected operating & sytem files) If you have kids set it back to default when your done.

just helps to see what you really have there.
