So see, It said that I was running out of disk space so I went local disk properties and i had like 900 mb free space??? So i was like wtf because i knew that was impossible. I went program files properties and guess what, it said I was gaining folders and files. O.o I have Revo Uninstaller Pro and i think the problem started after I used Evidence Remover. Please help lol, this started like yesterday. Apparently i got from 69% free space to like 1%.

Download SpaceSniffer, run it on your C:\, and it will show you what's taking up all your space.

WinDirStat is another good program in the genre –  dsolimano Sep 20 '10 at 2:23
SpaceSniffer is awesome! –  studiohack Sep 20 '10 at 2:43
I tried about 10 of those programs. SpaceSniffer's scan isn't the fastest, but it's got the slickest GUI out of any of them, and the GUI is the reason you use a program like that. –  zildjohn01 Sep 20 '10 at 17:46

Hey d00d. If you've been using program like that a lot recently, a lot of space is likely being used by System Restore data.

Go to the disk's Properties and select Disk Cleanup. On the More Options tab you will find a section for deleting all but the most recent System Restore point.
