Delete some files.

I think the question is...

Why does my computer show a 150GB harddisk as only having 15GBs on it. At least that is how I read it.....

Add a new secondary drive then transfer files; 1.5Tb drives are under $120.00 now.

i have 160 GB HD but now its only 15 GB left, if you check the HD there are no such big data or programs inside that will make it full,is it an indication of FAILED or corrupted HD? anyone who has the same problem?

Check the virtual memory size

Also, check for hidden files.

Google a utility called 'Treesize'. It will show you directory sizes.

thanks for the suggestion tree size, i found the culprit which make my HD full, something like a virus/spyware that lies on C drive. i delete it on safe mode, now normal C drive space is showing...thanks man.

Don't thank us, you fixed it yourself.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to thanks...

If you really want to thank us, install some anti-virus / anti-spyware software. If you're running a Windows system, I suggest the free Microsoft Security Essentials, although there are many other excellent free options. Make sure your firewall is on.
