i lost huge chunk of memory on disk C
I tried to execute copying a recent ISO file from macrium to dvd rw disc..and somehow lost a lot of memory on C..what happened? and now trying to find cause on own but cant.. I need that back.
Hi, to find where your space has gone you could try a program called Windirstat which helps to visually identify how your disk space is used both as a tree and a cushion map. But you seem to have plenty of space on C:.
Others suggest a program called Treesize.

copying a recent ISO file from macrium to dvd rw disc
If you were trying to create Macrium's boot disk, run Macrium and select the appropriate option.
looking at treesize free..i don't know which file can be deleted to get back lost memory..
maybe something in this section? if I could find lost memory.. memory went down right after tried to burn that iso file..i think I made a boo-boo somewhere
ok strike that...I ran wise disk cleaner as I normally do everyday, and it found over 15GB of junk..and now memory has been reclaimed! that was scary..i hate to lose memory
