I am new to the windows 7 environment, and frankly I'm not liking it. I'm using windows merely out of need. I like to keep my machine as clean as possible, so I was looking at the disk space. I have plenty of it available, but the used space seemed too much for what I have on the computer, which is practically nothing. Then I went to check my home directory. I right-click on it, and select properties. I see that my home directory has a reported size of 5.58 GB, and a size on disk of 5.62GB.
This is too much because I have only 4 images sitting on the desktop, and nothing else.
I wanted to see what was using all that space up. So I went folder by folder checking their properties, and none of them seems big. Then I selected them all, and their total size is of 333MB.
This is a brand new computer which I've used only to SSH into my linux server.
So the question then is, why the heck is the home directory 5.58GB in size? And of course, what can I do about this?
Thanks in advance for your help.
