Ok this is weird. I've been having various problems with my machine lately, mostly crashes (BSoD's) and a couple of lockups. These occur more often in-game than anywhere else.
So I got to thinking, I'd better give her a good clean out. So I have. I've ran two spyware-removal tools, full AV scan, Disk Cleanup, Defrag and I've removed > 6 GB of stuff I wasn't using.
So someone, explain this:
28.2 GB is gone. Apparently. I've checked cookies and temp. internet files, everything. There is obviously the possibility that I haven't checked everything, so throw some suggestions if you have any.
I was ........ing screwed over with this machine too - it came w/o an XP install / recovery disc, so that's out of the window (so is buying one on the cheap off eBay since I couldn't be more skint).
EDIT: Update. An extremely disturbing one at that. Y'see F: in that window? I can't do anything with it. TBH I forgot all about it - it appeared after I installed Fedora the other day. At least I think so. Anyways I've just tried to format it (through disk manager and paragon partition manager) and neither of them can do it. Disk manager simply states that the format failed, PPM says "Unknown partition type (unsupported file system)". Err... what?
EDIT2: For some reason it doesn't say there, but F: is 22.01 GB in size.
