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?
EDIT: I just checked it now and it jumped up to 26GB...odd.
I bet those Jehovah's Witnesses installed something on your pc that day...

Hahahah, nice memory dude
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.
dynamic page file ? but that cant be it alone
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.
doesnt windwos xp create those "backup system states" but yeah some more info would help OS, programms , anti virus ?
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?
operating system XP / vista(32/64) antivirus ? backuptools ? anything that you could think of creating large amount of data like torrent or other P2P downloads , steam, zatoo, video editing tools...
