- What's using up my disk space? 4 answers
I'm using Windows 7.
All of a sudden from nowhere, my D: Drive is showing a red bar for space, and it says there are only 620 MB free out of 28.9 GB. Yet when I browse into D:, select all files and folders, right click, and choose "Properties", the total space taken by the contents of D is a mere 2 GB. I've already enabled viewing hidden files, but the hidden files are really small. What on earth is taking up the rest of the space? Or is the My Computer's browser falsely saying I'm almost out of space?
I tried the solution here: What's using up my disk space?
But I got this error:
Error: The shadow copy provider had an unexpected error while trying to process the specified command.
