Hello,
I have a FAT32 partitioned drive with 17.8gb for both C and D drives. My current free space in C reads at 2.8GB!
I do not know how it got this low when I did not install any files and the last time I checked (1 mos ago ) it reads at 4GB. I removed a lot of files, used CCleaner, and defragged it but still there is a minimal gain.

Also, When I try to select all the content of my drive C, usage reads at 10 GB file size and 10.8GB on disk space, Where is the remaining 7GB?

Please help, my software kept shutting down and my mozilla too. Thank you very much for reading through and your help.

Do the following steps:
Click on the start menu, then All Programs, then Accessories, then System tools and click on Disk Clean up.

Doing this procedure will also help your computer run faster

@Jru, disk clean up is a windows software.. it will not delete any of the files without your permission. just try it.
