Default same problem

At the moment it's on 125 gig out of 224. I lose about 4 gig every time I restart the computer. last night it was jumping about all over the place. I don't think it actually knows how much space is left. I went in and counted everything up, and by my calculation it should have 170 gig left.

I'm so confused and annoyed!!! It doesn't help that I've basically been forced to use this operating system!

Default fixed it

To fix eaten hard drive problem:

Go to Start > Accessories > Right-click Command prompt and left click "Run as Administrator.

In the black command box, type:

Vssadmin resize shadowstorage /For=c: /On=c: /MaxSize=10GB

Press enter on the keyboard, then restart the computer once it confirms.

Hey presto! :-D
