Virus Eating Disk Space
by mharrington2 - 5/4/08 1:45 PM
I have a Sony Vaio with Windows XP, the Vaio splits it's HD into two separate ones, C drive and D drive. C comes with 13.9 GB and D comes with 55.5 GB. I have recently started receiving alerts saying my C drive doesn't have enough space, so I checked and all of a sudden my C drive went from multiple gigs of free space to a few hundred MB. Over the past week my C drive has been getting lower. I will uninstall a program or delete files and it will only get smaller (yes I emptied the trash can). My drive went from 111MB to 650MB to 812MB in less than one minute. I can sit there and watch it change. This is NOT an issue of too many programs or files. Yes I delete my temp files and cookies and all that. This is far too random to be just a disk problem.
Has any one else had these symptoms and found it on virus scan? Because my scan doesn't find anything.
