Disk space lost :(

Hello,

When i was erasing unused disk space on C drive in 35 steps (Gutmann), i noticed that the size of my drive was shrinking more and more so i stopped the erasing. After stopping the erasing, the size was still reduced. I looked at your site (faq) and tried all the options, but my unused disk space is still reduced. I have a 12 GB drive, and when i do select all (hidden files included) on my drive, all together have a size of 5,8 GB. In My Computer, i see that i have 2 GB free space. This means that there is 4 GB lost somewhere... Do u have any idea how i can regain that space? I've tried searching for large files, but cant find anything... And i know it has something to do with eraser, because i saw the reducing of my free space.

When i free unused space in 1 step, the temporary folder is created on c:/ and removed afterwards... What went wrong with the guttman step?

i have Eraser 5.7 (July 25th 2003) according to About and the readme.txt that comes with the installer.


Greetz.

That's what caused the problem.

... tried all the options ... I've tried searching for large files ...
In "How can I fix this? - Option 2", did you look for the folder ~ERAFSWD.TMP ?
