    Strange Memory Reporting Problem

    I have a very strange disk space reporting issue. I don't know when it first appeared (I'm on 17134.81 now), because I never looked at Settings/System/Storage - I have always used other tools. I just checked it out, having read about it in another comment. Anyway, my C: drive, which is my Windows System drive, is a 128 GB partition. 'Storage' shows it as 436 GB! It shows 357 used, and 79 free (which is the correct amount of free space). It shows 329 in System&Reserved. Disk Manager shows C: as a healthy and happy 128 GB partition. In File Explorer, right clicking on "C:" and clicking "Properties" shows the correct amount as well.

    Does anyone have a clue as to what might be going on with the "Storage" reporting?

    Have you double clicked on System & Reserved to see how that 329 GB is used?

    Yes. There's the usual Virtual Memory, Hibernation, System Restore - all reporting proper values. The first item is System Files, reporting 321 GB used. But there are only 128 GB in the partition. I wonder how it is getting that number?
