Growing hard drive
My hard drive contents grow by about 20 Mb every 30 - 60 min of time on the Internet. I've removed cookies, caches, cleared all the detritus I can find with little effect.
Trawling through the files, adding up [laboriously!] all the folder sizes, including hidden files, always produces a sum that is rather less [by about 20%] than the amount displayed in the "contents of C drive" folder.
Uninstalling and reinstalling Windows [ME] seems to purge whatever it is I can't find by conventional means and may get rid of up to 2 gig of contents with no discernible effect on what I can see, though obviously I'd rather not do that more often than I can help.
