I've got this strange problem where deleting files from C drive (e.g. uninstalling programs, clearing temp dir etc.) does not make the available space any bigger. If fact every time I uninstall a program the disk space is reduced a little. I am physically deleting files - they are not in recycle bin.
The laptop is a HP Mini 1004TU and it's got an 8GB SSD and Windows XP Home edition.
A ran a program called Scanner to check what the disk space is used by, and it's showing 2GB free, but when I open drive properties it shows only 360MG free.
CHKDSK /F and had to restart the system to proceed with the scan. Nothing special noted during scan.
