Okay first of all, I love foldershare! I cannot imagine life without it.
But, on one of my laptops, with a 160G HDD, I had about
- 50GB of VMs,
- 10G of Windows
- 10G of program files
- 5G of documents/work etc.
You add all those up together, and ou have about 70-80GB of space filled. But, my HDD was showing almost completely full!!
First, I thought it was Windows Vista previous versions. So I cleaned out all previous versions, and I gained 800KB (don't laugh).
I just could not figure out, where all thid disk space was?
So, I wrote a little program to iterate through all dirs on my system, and show me disk usage of the biggest pigs.
FOLDERSHARE WAS IT! DANGIT!
At an obscure location of C:\Users\Sahil Malik\AppData\Local\FolderShare\trash, that "trash" dir, was eating up about 40 gigs of space.
Whew, how emancipating. Now half my HDD is free, and I'm running defrag.
