    drive C used space is gaining

    For some reason my used space is gaining more(see attached). Just a few weeks ago the used space was at 50gb today it is up to 70gb. I don't know why it keeps gaining probably everyday a few gigabyte. I did a tuneup update in geeksquad but that was all. I never installed any programs. Does anyone know the reasons for this?

    Go here and download 'Folder Size'. Folder Size - Freeware file size analysis. Check the directory sizes, folder sizes and file sizes on your computer with this freeware tree size analysis tool.

    If you run this you can see what space folders are taking. This should help you see where the problem lies.

    Multiple systems on multiple computer

    you are gaining "weight" on your computer cause of temporary files, restore points, high use of the swapfile, hiberfile and not forgetting to mention the ever gaining folder "winsxs" (which has on my pc already a size of 8GB with raising tendency)...
