Ok, this is weird.

Yesterday, before I installed a small mod (for bf2), I checked my harddrive space left. It was 33GB (yes I'm currently waiting on a new rig). All the sudden, today, I check and its 18.6 GB left. Its been going up and down in none sensible amounts for a few weeks now. I thought nothing of it at first, but this is getting ridiculous. I don't know what I truley have left. The PC itself though, is still running fine, its always run great.

Any thoughts on what this could be, and why its doing this?

Thanks

EDIT: I just checked it now and it jumped up to 26GB...odd.

Do you go onto the internet alot? Download/listen to music, videos, run Java/Flash applications/applets, etc? Because those temp files may cause some fluctuation in your HDD space, if you've set to automatically delete them when they expire or at certain intervals.

Until you give us more info (what programmes are running - do you have anything that periodically creates, copies a lot of files) we can't answer your questions.

When I'm on the PC, a lot of the time is spent surfing the web. I did a disk clean up, and it only raised it to 29GB

What programs do you want to know? The ones in the system tray or?
