Hehe... XP is misreading your HD freespace --this happened to me once after performing one too many registry tweaks (ya know, the ones that claim to boost performance but really don't).

Try running a disk check at bootup. Also, you might want to back up the files, just in case it's a physical partition problem, and run partition magic (or similar) to verify the actual used space on the drive.

When you got your hard disk, it was baby. Now it grew!

Congratulations, your little girl is all grown up, from 19 to 120, wow! :p

im sorry to say

i think u have a virus that increases the size that windows sees every time u boot. may eventiually *&^% your hard drive. if norton or whatever antivirus software u have doesnt pick it up then download trojan remover and search with that it could be a trojan.:confused:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
