    sudden loss of HD space


    I had almost 300 g of 500 g free and suddenly it went to under 100 g. I did a system restore from before the memory loss and it is still there. can I find these 'files' and delete them or what is the problem?

    Were you using file history to an external device and disconnected this? Windows will put these in a special "hold" folder until you reconnect the external device. A descriptive symptom is here: but is is not - Microsoft Community
