GUEST,DWR Tech: Where are your files? What takes space? (13) RE: Tech: Where are your files? What takes space? 30 Dec 09


Thanks for that, Bill. Yes, it is interesting to see it at work. My C drive runs about 80-90% full all the time. Right now it's 57G of 289G free. I have to keep dumping TV shows (mostly local news and CBS Sunday Morning) to keep it out of the red zone -- it's likely I wouldn't have watched them all anyway!

But the key find was over 50G of camera video from last year that I am pretty certain that I won't ever need again. So after a quick look at those, I can nearly double my free space. And you can zoom in on a section to see even more clearly what is there.

The other internal drive is not quite so crowded, but I intend to look at it later. (I know it has some of the TV shows that I couldn't seem to part with when ditch time came on the C drive!)
