There is only one partition for both system files and personal data, which is C:. The other two partitions are for boot and for recovery.
Now I have two different reports on the size of C: on my Windows 7:
- by clicking the property of C:, it shows 59.4 GB for "used space";
- by selecting all contents (I have setup to view all hidden files and directories) under C: and viewing their property, it shows 46.9 GB for "size" and 47.6 GB for "size on disk".
Here are my questions:
- I was wondering why the two reports are not the same, and where the difference comes?
- in the second way, why "size" and "size on disk" are different? What do they mean actually? What is the difference between them and "used space" in the first way?
Thanks in advance!
