Hard disk size reporting error in SP2

By geoff_obrien ·
Is there some reason two XP SP2 machines are reporting low hard disk space when they have only 25% of their capacity occupied by programs? I checked the files and the problem is the windows directory which is reporting a huge file size(at least 80%) of the disk capacity. It reports this erroneously. There are no large files to take this space. Is this an error in SP2? Is there fix?

How did you check the directory? Are you seeing all files (hidden, system etc)? What is the size of the disk and how much space is being reported as free?

I checked the directory using windows explorer and also by looking at properties in the system.
I enabled hidden files. The disks in question are 20 GB, 250 MB free reportes and 40 GB, 260 MB reported free.
