Check to see if there is anything connected to your PC. If not, then check for viruses...

We had a similar problem about a month ago, some user's drives appeared "full" suddenly, and some "DIR00001" directories were created that couldn't be deleted by conventional means.
It was related to a bad Norton Antivirus update that apparantly messed up the "FAT". It was from an update around 6/17 or so. If you're running NAV 2000, check www.symantec.com or email me for more info.
good luck! -Will
