Space on hard drive

When I'm in windows explorer and click on the c drive it shows 2.23 gb (dick free space 1.73 gb)
When I'm in system information it shows Available space on drive C: 1770MB of 8212MB (FAT32) What is up with this.
How do I find out what is taking up the rest of my space on my hard drive.
Thanks for the help.

You could try a scandisk incase the disk is corrupted and showing the wrong info.


Create a Windows Startup floppy and boot from it.
At the prompt type SCANDISK

Thanks, but I done that several times already with no results. I don't know if it's possible but can there be a duplicate of the hard drive (like a shadow)?

Try start/find
Choose advanced
Size (dropdown) at least, type in 5000 and hit find.
See if any of these larger files (at least 5MB) are duplicated in other folders.
If yes, see what these folders are and if they are necessary.
This may find duplicate OS.

Do this one again and left click/highlight then right click/properties and make sure all these are MegaBytes and no GigaBytes appear. It seems some appear different in format.
If not needed, delete nbimage's, txt file, and (not sure what qicfile app is)

Ok....after you look at the above do this for me:
Open windows explorer.
Is C: your only partition? If it is or not, it looks to be 8GB.
Open C:
On edit tab at the top, hit select all.
Now put your cursor anywhere in the highlighted parts of the right pane (which should be all blue) and right click/then properties.
In the size it will list XXXGB {XXXbytes}, XXXbytes
What are these numbers?
If this shows you having 6-7GB of data, then what do you think you are supposed to have?

I don't know what else to tell you. Everything indicates that you are storing about 6GB of data with about 2GB free space. You don't think this to be true?
You have no duplicate files or folders to hold dup backups or OS's.

One more confirmation. Boot to dos. (bring up bootmenu and choose command prompt only)
Now type this at the c: prompt only.............
Dir /s
Or where ever you are type c:\dir /s
All you directories/sub directories and the files in them will scroll down.
When it ends, it will tell you at the bottom how much free space is on the disk.
This will have nothing to do with Windows. Just how much data and how much free space left on disk. If it shows 1.7GB (close) free space, then I would assume that to be correct.
If this is absolutely different than what you think you should have, please get back as I'm curious to know what you think.
Good luck.
