Let me try to explain what I am trying to understand.
I have 2 physical drives in my laptop.
The one without the OS, the D drive, shows 200 MB of used space right after formatting. (Right click -> Properties)
It shows a protected operating system file 'System Information Volume'. It shows 0 bytes of both size and size on disk. (Right click -> Properties)
Now after sometime, another protected operating system file appears, '$Recycle.Bin'. It show a size on disk of 120 bytes, and size of 0 bytes. (Right click -> Properties)
And after '$Recycle.Bin' appears the drive shows a used space of 1.3 GB (Right click -> Properties).
The recovery points on D drive are disabled.
Can someone please answer the following questions- 1) What do you think causes the jump in the used space? 2) The original 200 MB of used space right after formatting, is that normal?
