Well. I think I have found where my lost hard disc space is in Windows ME that I inquired about in an earlier post, but I dont know what to do about it. While running a routine scan with ad-aware I noticed it took an extremely long time scanning C:\_restore emp. Could it be that each time I ran erase freespace on my 30 gig drive, with only 2.35 gig used, system restore was adding all those wiped free spaces to its temp file? These files are "access denied" so I cannot see them. Can anyone help me with this problem?
