Storage all used up, by nothing?

This may not be the correct place to post this, but I wasn't sure.

I just recently downloaded Windows 7 Ultimate, and a couple of drivers. Nothing else. I'm using a 90GB Corsair Force 3, and it says that 67.5GB have been used, but there is no way that that's possible. What happened? Any ideas, solutions?

Thanks

Oh, I forgot a big part of the story haha. My windows folder is around 11GB, and all of the rest is around another 1GB total. So overall, 12GB and it says 67 are used.

Are you sure you didnt install any antivirus or something like that? Is your computer custom made and was it a clean install? It is quite impossible to do that as my 60gb m4 is doing the job well with less than half the space used.

anti virus wouldnt take up that much space. 100 mb at most. Did you turn on "show hidden folders"? You can do so by going to folder options from the control panel. Theres probably a lot of folders you cannot see.

Oh really? Thanks...



No antivirus was installed. The computer is a custom build, and I don't exactly know what clean install means.



Yes, I have. I even set it to show the "protected OS folders".

There is probably a hiberfil.sys and a pagefile.sys and both are usually about the size of your ram total each. so if you have 6gb of ram for instance like i do on my system, I have a 4gb hiberfile.sys file and a 6gb pagefile.sys file that reside at the root of c:\

Yep, those are the two taking it all up. Wasn't able to view them until I downloaded that software. I have 32GB of RAM, so that's why they're massive. (Ubuntu did the same thing haha). You went from having the worst answer to the best ;D Any idea on how to fix that? Can I edit the size of them? (Again, I'm used to Ubuntu so I know how to partition)

Worked like a charm, I don't which of your three answers to select as the best, haha. The same thing happened when I used Ubuntu, and I had the same solution; delete it. I never hibernate, because my boot time is almost as fast.
