The heck? Disk Cleanup shows 51GB of Temporary files?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Using a SSD. Samsung 830 128GB.

Thing is...I have NO idea how that happened. Besides that, all the space is already accounted for...so it's weird, it makes me curious to check it out, but worried it will delete something important. The Temp folder says it has 1.34GB in it if I right click it.

Weird, it changes. I ran Disk Cleanup again, and now it's 9GB. Did it again and it changed to something else. Could it be some type of virus? I'm running NOD32 & Spybot S&D...

Install WinDirStat and you'll get a visual of everything that's taking up what space on your drive. It's a godsend for me with limited space on my SSD.

 

One day my SSD was almost full so I checked and it turned out to be hiberfil.sys, which I disabled.
