    Try WinDirStat to determine where/what is taking up the space

    Hi XMEzy:
    Welcome to tenforums.com! :)

    Do you have CCleaner installed? Looks like there may be an automatic Drive Wipe happening.

    With CCleaner, it essentially fills the free space on your hard drive with 0 byte 'sleeper files' to overwrite deleted data. That's why the drive appears to run out of space rapidly.
    When the process is done you will retrieve your space back plus, perhaps a little extra space.

    I wasn't encouraging you to run a Drive Wipe!
    I thought that a Drive Wipe was happening on your machine due to your screenshot!
