Hi group,

Running XP SP2 on a laptop with a 20gb hard drive partitioned onto C (14gb)
and D (6gb), but suddenly, I'm running out of space on C. I don't have
songs, pictures or movie files or programs that could be taking a lot of
space, so what else could it be? Some time ago I ran into a file utility
software that would represent graphically file and folder sizes, but can't
remember the name. Any other software you might recommend to find out what's
taking so much space?

TIA,
Marco

SequoiaView is an excellent free (and clean) utility helpful in tracking
down mysterious missing drive space.

It provides a one window graphical representation of which files are taking
up how much space where on a drive, often quickly and easily tracking down
files that Windows is reluctant to reveal.

(It's kinda fun too) :)

Ramesh,
thanks for your help.

Something else that is going on with the same equipment, but not sure if
it's related to the other problem. Norton Antivurs won't update and the
autoprotect is not working either. I already checked on Symantec's web page
and did a search on google, but I could not find any help. This is the
message I get:

Windows XP 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2

NAVNT 9.05

LiveUpdate was not able to complete this update.
